Guideline Geo Academy
As well as individual training packages we will be running regular workshops and seminars, as part of our Guideline Academy, allowing you to improve or refresh theoretical knowledge and keep abreast of technological and methodological developments:
Workshops are hands-on courses with a strong focus on the practicalities of survey procedure and data handling, empowering participants to realize the full capabilities of their Guideline Geo solution. Most of the workshops require very little prior theoretical knowledge. The courses start with the basic operating principles of a particular instrument, look at the range of available options for survey,
demonstrate how to assess the quality of the recorded data, and then cover some basic data processing. At every stage, the theoretical work is supported by practical demonstrations, with hints and tips on how to acquire the highest quality data and avoid the most common survey mistakes.
Seminars range from basic technical awareness training to more advanced events providing in-depth coverage of a particular geophysical method or application area; these tend to have less hands-on time with instruments than the workshops.
The basic technical awareness training is suited to those with limited knowledge of our products but who are interested in how geophysical methods might be of use to them. These ‘awareness’ courses cover the general principles of geophysics and the range of techniques available, including their capabilities, limitations and common applications.
Along the way we look at how the Guideline Geo family of instrument utilize these geophysical methods to provide high quality survey solutions for mapping the subsurface.The more advanced seminars are designed for customers with prior experience of a method or instrumentation so that the focus of the session need not surround basic principles of operation or geophysical theory.
The advanced seminars might relate to a particular technique, covering both the theory and practical survey considerations (for example, “collection and analysis of IP data” or “MASW survey”), or it could concentrate on one application area where a number of techniques are discussed (for example “water prospection” or “pollution monitoring”).
