Spotlight on Education
The start of a new year is always a good time to make good on those resolutions to get the training credits you need to maintain or upgrade your technical skills and career opportunities -- and AAPG can help you meet your goals through its education program.
The time is here to register for the Winter Education Conference, set Feb. 12-16 in Houston.
Twelve courses will be offered over the five days -- and if you can’t attend the entire week you can share your badge with a co-worker to take advantage of the discount rate!
You can find all the course descriptions and download a registration form from the AAPG Web site at www.aapg.org/education/wec.cfm.
On March 12-13 we offer a brand new course on “Integrated Petrography and Geochemistry of Carbonate Rocks,” taught by industry experts Peter and Dana Scholle. This course will be held in Dallas, and participants will receive AAPG Memoir #77 as part of the course notes.
Details are at www.aapg.org/education /shortcourse/details.cfm?ID=104.
Four courses will be offered in conjunction with the AAPG Annual Convention in Long Beach, Calif. They are:
- Reservoir Engineering for Geologists, by Rich Green and William Kazmann, March 31-April 1.
