Training Contents

A typical training day is as follows:

  • Morning: you are are introduced to methods and supported theory.
  • Afternoon: you put your new knowledge into practice with real case studies coming from the industry. You will use Isatis.neo Mining Edition, the software solution in geostatistics from our partner Geovariances and are supervised by a senior geostatistician.

Tuesday evenings and Fridays are dedicated to Professional Projects where participants work on their own dataset.

Course sessions, guidance and case study tutorials will be delivered in English.
You will also be given a reference book
either in English, French or Spanish.
