eAssessment Platform Supports Booking and Delivery of Assessments in the Oil and Gas Industry

Setting the Scene

The International Well Control Forum (IWCF) is the only independent body focused on oil and gas well training and accreditation. As a governing body for the oil and gas industry IWCF manages the oil and gas assessment process and certification of a large number of candidates worldwide through their global network of training centers. Assessments are presented in 17 languages and include both knowledge and practical elements.

The Challenge

eCom worked with IWCF to understand their challenges and the requirements of their accredited centers and candidates. Through this process it became clear that moving from paper-based exams to an online assessment management system could deliver significant benefits to IWCF. The major challenge was to bring all the manual tasks and individual systems used in the assessment process into one corporate application. The solution had to allow invigilators to monitor student progress, automatically mark online tests, record practical assessments, manage and verify certificates, and provide a process to deal with question authoring and the multiple translation versions. The over-arching objective was to make the training and assessment process more accessible, responsive and user-friendly for IWCF staff, candidates, training providers, invigilators and assessors.
