Title: A.A.P.G. Continuing Education Program: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Daniel A. Busch

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The A.A.P.G., in recognition of the constant and rapid changes occurring in the art of oil exploration, is initiating a program of continuing education to affiliated and cooperating societies, oil companies, and university departments of geology. A series of 12-hour courses will be presented by the top authorities in this country on the following subjects: Stratigraphic Principles and Practice, Structural Geology, Petroleum, Economics, and Electronic Data Processing. It is anticipated that some local geological societies might wish to schedule lectures on only several course offerings, whereas others might wish ultimately to schedule the entire program over a period of years. Two lecture series per year are considered to be a realistic course offering for local geological societies, whereas only one per year might be all that a university geological department can justify. Oil companies might find it more expedient to sponsor three or four topics in concentrated fashion all within one week. The entire program is designed to update the technical background of practicing geologists.
