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:
  • Organizing short educational events.
  • 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.
