Training on Demand

Apart from the annual training courses, Principal Investigators of running or forthcoming ICDP drilling projects are encouraged to propose new Training Courses. The course agenda should be project-related. The special themes and the appropriate levels of the courses can be suited for each ICDP project and its science team.

Specific Training

In order to support proponents, engineers, and scientists for their specific tasks within their drilling project we provide a number of training courses or workshops. For ICDP projects, we recommend to apply for it already in the workshop proposal and at least in the full proposal.

Drilling Information System (DIS) Training

Training on Data and Sample Management

DIS training course for several lake drilling projects

We recommend to do the Drilling Information System DIS training in a period of 6 to 2 months before the actual drilling operations will start. The training needs five days. ICDP projects can apply for it in the full proposal, and finally book it after approval. The project has to take over the unavoidable travel costs for the subscribed persons. The project has to provide at least one Laptop exclusively used onsite during drilling (see here). ICDP provides the training facilities and corresponding accommodations.
