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. If you are seeking a less intensive experience, please investigate our e-symposia and our new micro-learning interactive video-based courses. Courses are 4 weeks long, and begin the 1st of every month. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate.
