Ensco announced that the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) has accredited Ensco's Competency Assurance Program for thirty-one offshore positions. Accreditation by IADC validates that Ensco has a best-in-class Competency Assurance Program (CAP) for offshore employees around the globe.
