Additional Short Courses

The latest capacity building service of the UNU-GTP has been to offer customer-designed short courses in developing countries, prepared for the first time in 2010. This new service of the UNU-GTP has been triggered by an urgent need for training in countries planning fast-tracking of geothermal development, while it has also been an offspring of the regular training and Short Courses and the material prepared there.

This has proven a good opportunity for some countries/institutions in need of a rapid capacity building process, beyond what UNU-GTP can service under its conventional operations, and which have themselves the strength or the support of external mechanisms to finance such events. The paying customer defines the outline of the Short Course, while UNU-GTP is a guarantee of the quality of the content.

The first such courses were held in 2010 for four different customers in 3 countries. The contents varied from general geoscientific courses to geothermal drilling, or scaling and corrosion in geothermal installation.
