Training courses in mining, oil & gas and environmental geostatistics
Geovariances offers general or industry-related geostatistics training available worldwide in various languages. Courses cover all aspects of geostatistics for resource estimation, contamination characterization, mapping or risk analysis. We provide a variety of training options, including live public, in-house or online sessions, with standard contents or customized to your team’s unique needs.
Choose the training best suited to your profile
Whatever your technical level or requirements, you will find a training adapted to your needs in our comprehensive course portfolio. Our courses range from short webinars and half-day introductory seminars to 3-5 day fundamental level training or advanced level workshops. Our programs are specifically tailored to your industry and your specific operational challenges and are conducted either in English, French, Spanish or Portuguese languages.
Develop the geostatistical skills you need
Our programs cover the whole geostatistics workflow, from data analysis and variography to advanced multivariate non-linear methods. With our courses, you can get a “hands-on experience” of the importance of key geostatistical concepts, rapidly develop valuable skills with our niche topics, improve your software practice or just get some insights on the added value of geostatistics. Training can be completed with mentoring for goal-oriented workshops.
Get your geostatistical training at the time you need it
You may pick up a public session from one of our catalogues. Or you can ask us to organize your specific training for you and your colleagues, privately and tailor-made to answer your unique requirements. You will then choose between instructor-led classroom covering 8 hours of content per day or live online solutions limited to 2 hours per session and 2 sessions per day. The choice is yours!
Learn from our experienced trainers
The skills you acquire with our experts help you build more reliable quantitative models and gain confidence in your results. Our trainers are senior geostatisticians, statisticians, geologists, mining or petroleum engineers adding up decades of experience in teaching geostatistics and carrying out consulting projects. They know your business and understand your specific challenges. They are also the ones who train the industry geostatistics experts.

"I really recommend this course, as it gives a rather comprehensive introduction and practical operational applications to lot of domains of the E&P industry."
"J'ai beaucoup apprécié l'expertise en formation de Geovariances lors d'une première expérience d'un cours organisé à Institut des Sciences de la Terre à Dakar sur l'estimation des ressources minérales."
Dans le cadre de ses formations, l’INSTN fait appel à des experts reconnus. Yvon Desnoyers, consultant à Geovariances, est de ceux-là. Ses interventions permettent de délivrer une formation de qualité en combinant une approche théorique et des exemples d’applications...
It has been a great time and a great opportunity to be able to learn and share Geostatistics knowledge and computer codes from the Geovariances team. I think that only by myself it would have been impossible to realize some of the main features of Isatis.
"The online training was conducted in 10 sessions of 2 hours over 2 weeks. This gave me the time I needed to fully digest the course between 2 sessions and the opportunity to be critical about what I was doing. I definitely recommend Geovariances online training."
