Foundation Geologist
I can't say enough great things about [instructor]. Great course. One of the best instructors ever.
Sr. Geological Advisor
Well-balanced - not sure changes needed. It flows very well. Using our own data was a strong plus, as well as discussions of our overall processes.
Sr. Geologist
Reintegrating previous concepts helped solidify my understanding of the materials.
