Why Us?

GeoHistory is a recognized leader in Oil and Gas Industry course content and concept teachability, developing and providing courses for both nontechnical and technical personnel within and outside of the Canadian Oil and Gas Industry. It is our belief that a broad, practical knowledge base of the various oil and gas disciplines and specialties is essential for oil and gas personnel to perform effectively in today's economic climate. Highly regarded, GeoHistory's courses are considered amongst the best Oil and Gas Industry Courses available.

GeoHistory Inc. offers a number of classroom based Oil and Gas Industry courses, including the Unconventional Resources Essentials Course, the Oil Sands Heavy Oil Essentials Course and the Rocks, Records, Contracts and Reserves Course.

GeoHistory also runs a number of field courses and field trips, like our original one day field course, the Oil and Gas Essentials Field Course, the Production and Facilities Field Course, and the Evolution of the Oil and Gas Industry - History of Turner Valley and the Turner Valley Gas Plant Field Trip.

Many of our courses form part of the internal training programs of Canadian oil and gas corporations and organizations. Our classroom courses and field courses were designed by a Professional Geologist, Professional Engineer and historian. Combining technical expertise in geology, engineering and geophysics with decades of practical technical and managerial experience in the oil and gas industry and an extensive knowledge of local natural, cultural and historical events enables our course instructors to ensure that participants receive learning experiences unattainable elsewhere - unique, memorable experiences that can immediately be applied to the workplace. As a result, Geohistory's courses frequently exceed participant expectations.
