International Well Control Forum (IWCF), a not-for-profit membership organisation, has seen interest rise sharply in its online training courses, partner eCom Scotland said 23 November.
IWCF moved to online assessments in the wake of restrictions following the Covid19 pandemic. The online assessments, which include both knowledge and practical elements, are available in 17 languages.
“IWCF wanted to make the training and assessment process more accessible, responsive and user-friendly for candidates, training providers, assessors as well as IWCF staff – hence the move to eAssessment,” said eCom’s managing director, Wendy Edie.
“The solution – known as FORUM and delivered via eCom’s assessment management platform, eNetAssess – allows invigilators to monitor student progress, automatically mark online tests, record practical assessments, manage and verify certificates, as well as deal with question authoring and multiple translation versions,” she said.
FORUM issues successful candidates with electronic certification (eCerts), which significantly reduces waiting times. The eCerts provide candidates with instant awards for display on their social media profiles.
FORUM enables candidates to register, update their details, find a centre and take part in assessments. It also provides IWCF administrators, centres, assessors and invigilators with a single platform for reviewing candidate details. For more information on IWCF please see here.
