The ASEG offers two methods through which geoscientists may update and acquire new skills.  It is envisaged that geoscientists and geophysicists completing these courses can obtain CPD recognition from their respective employers and professional institutes.
ASEG’s annual travelling program of one-day courses on minerals and petroleum subjects delivered by distinguished lecturers focussing on the needs of early career geoscientists with an interest in geophysics. Each course is hosted in turn by two or more State Branches across the country over a period of one to two weeks.
ASEG’s series of annual travelling specialised courses for geophysicists wishing to upskill and update their knowledge of advances in specific geophysics technology and techniques. Each course in this series will usually extend for two or more days and be hosted by State Branches across the country over a period of three to four weeks.
