Geo-Industrial training

The major issue faced by an individual while stepping into the professional world after completing a degree is to understand the approach of applying the knowledge gained in the student years. To solve a practical problem, one needs a professional point of view along with the ideas to improvise and tailor the ideas according to the practical situation. The motive behind the series of training courses is to help the participants update and refresh their field geology and technical skills required to succeed in performing field geological and technical writing work.

Professional skill and professional knowledge development will curb the challenges faced while joining a new company and will make it easier to blend in with the new professional environment. Some basic skills which come in handy while applying geology in the professional world are collecting data from the field, analyzing geological data collected from the field, and preparing a report on the basis of the data. The understanding of the importance of data, the method of collection of structural data, and preparation of map from the same along with structural analysis and ore mineral field mapping are a few skills where geoscientists are expected to have experience on. Advanced structural analysis on drill cores.
