Join the team of industry experts who keep the geosciences informed.

The Mission of the SEG Continuing Education Program is to provide educational resources to our global membership and to others interested in Geophysics through courses and lectures taught by recognized experts. We stimulate professional interest in theoretical and applied Geophysics, direct career development, and expand technical horizons by:

  • Providing training in basic, intermediate and advanced levels
  • Providing advanced curriculum topics in geophysical techniques
  • Increasing networking opportunities and interaction between participants and experts
  • Supporting accepted practices

Teach for SEGThe SEG Continuing Education Committee reviews and approves courses, discusses topics of interest to develop courses, and provides input to the SEG Board on the education of the membership.

Individuals are invited to submit a New Course Proposal Form (DOC) to the Committee. If you are interested in teaching for SEG, please send the SEG New Course Proposal form with brief course description and biography to SEG Continuing Education . Instructors receive an instructor fee per course instruction day and reimbursement of travel, hotel accommodation and meals.

SEG offers a wide selection of two-day courses taught by experts in the industry. Courses are offered at Education Events and at the SEG International Annual Exhibition. Any course that is offered in the typical brick and mortar setting is also a candidate to be offered in an  eLearning delivery mode. At present, SEG is developing a number of course offerings for SEG membership. This includes virtual courses, short courses (3-4 hours in length), lectures, and a series of short courses.

Guidelines for Submitting Course Proposals to SEG

SEG has a variety of course programs for both public, eLearning and in-house offerings. When submitting a proposal, please be sure to let us know in which of these programs you would like to participate .

Training Courses

Training courses are courses that are either one or two days in length. They are primarily lecture content, but can also include some class exercises to illustrate various course topics or processes.

In-House Training

Instructors can concentrate on topics, data, or areas of specialist interest to employees, making the information immediately applicable. Many of the courses are structured so that companies may select the length of the course from two to five days.

Virtual Course instructors share their experiences

My virtual course experience was very rewarding. The format requires careful planning, but the support from SEG is first class, so I think I learned more than my course participants!

Andrew Long

I had a very positive and fun experience doing a virtual course presentation for SEG. My presentation was carefully reviewed and the comments received during the dry run were excellent.

William Harbert

I have enjoyed giving both virtual courses. Both courses motivated me to create simple and clear presentations that I still use today. I also got great feedback in dry runs, during the course as well as after the course.
