The Society of Exploration Geophysicists has created the SEG Competency Management System (CMS) to help those in the global geophysics community identify new learning opportunities and manage their careers. SEG has partnered with IHRDC (International Human Resources Development Corporation), a respected provider of training and competency development solutions for the oil and gas industry, to provide this valuable tool.
This system, available free of charge to SEG members, provides an easy way for you to assess your current capabilities against specific competency models for key geoscience careers. The software is designed to easily identify competency gaps based on assessment results, then recommend a learning plan that helps close these gaps. You will be referred to SEG training resources, including eLearning courses, along with generic third-party course titles, SEG technical papers, books, and on-job work assignments.
Ten SEG competency models were developed and vetted by industry experts:
- Acquisition RnD Geophysicist
- Engineering Geophysicist
- Environmental Geophysicist
- General Geophysicist
- Non-Seismic Geophysicist
- Processing/Imaging RnD Geophysicist
- Quantitative Seismic Interpreter
- Seismic Acquisition Geophysicist
- Seismic Interpreter
- Seismic Processing/Imaging Geophysicist
