Night School

Welcome to the GESGB Night School programme. We aim to provide our members with access to low cost, high quality training to boost professional development. Courses are exclusive to GESGB members only.

These classes have been specifically designed for those who are keen to participate in our training courses but are unable to take time off work. We understand the pressures our members face and we want to facilitate their training needs by holding classes outside of office hours.

Course themes will range from technical skills to petroleum economics but all will focus on ‘skills within a work environment’. The classes will be facilitated by highly experienced tutors who will be there to help you build your skills and knowledge for a solid future in the energy industry.
