AAPG online certificate courses are designed to equip earth scientists with knowledge to enable them to take the lead in integrated energy projects and programs. This is the equivalent of a semester-long graduate-level course, and you will be expected to read, analyze, synthesize information, and conduct research. You will write four brief papers, which includes a final project. Certificate Courses can be started at any time and are 4 weeks long. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate. If you are seeking a less intensive experience, please investigate our e-symposia courses.
