Our team of fully qualified Trainers & Assessors (TAE) can assist you with your specific training requirements, develop new course content and even customise our course content to suit your company needs. These qualified Trainers have experience in the industry at a grass roots level, they also conduct the Geological Solutions Certificate in Practical Geology.

GIS/MapInfo Training

Geosols has several GIS/MapInfo trainers who can assist in all your training needs, either at our training facility or on your site.

Practical Coal Geology Training Course

The Geological Solutions Practical Coal Geology Training Course  is now available and the course can be accommodated in our New Core Lab Training Facility located on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland Australia or on your site.

The course was developed as a direct response of the lack of practical field experience given to graduate geologists while at University. As a company and principal members of AusIMM for a number of years, Geological Solutions is proactively supportive of professional development of the ‘younger generation of Geologists’. We take our obligation seriously in ‘actively assisting and encouraging those under our direction to advance their knowledge and experience’ (AusIMM Code of Conduct – Ethic Pt 8)

The course modules relate to the tasks and duties Geologists and Field Technicians perform on a daily basis, with an leadership module included, to address rig supervision issues. It is mandatory for all Geological Solutions Teams Members to complete this course. The course modules include:
