Short Courses

Teaching intensive short courses to industry and academia is an important part of what I do; I have taught more than 150. Please check the CCG home page where I try to list upcoming public courses.

The Advanced Multivariate Geostatistics short course is becoming increasingly popular. Lectures all morning, some exercises in the early afternoon, then close the day with lectures. This is offered in-house.

My standard Fundamentals of Geostatistics four day short course covers the essential principles of geostatistics for a variety of applications. This is offered in-house and for the public. A number of other courses including advanced customized classes are also taught from time-to-time; mostly in-house. Two-day classes on focused subjects are also taught.
