The SPE GCS Continuing Education Committee is responsible for providing continuing education opportunities for its members as needed for their professional development and career management.  It does so by:
  • Staging educational events such as short courses (technical, business, etc.)
  • Identifying the above-stated needs of the section membership by surveys, interviews and accumulating information from individual requests
  • Developing new courses as needed and as identified
  • Piloting short courses for the Society of Petroleum Engineers (the majority of SPE-sanctioned short courses were either developed or piloted in the Gulf Coast Section)
  • Championing timely initiatives, such as distance learning, computer-based training, cooperative efforts with universities and other professional societies.
