RECEIVE RECOGNITION FOR YOUR EFFORT
When you work hard and complete one of our full
length self-directed courses, you deserve some credit for your
effort. So when you have completed the exercises, follow the
instructions below to obtain a personalized Certificate of
1. List the chapters in this course
and for each chapter, list the three key points to remember (in
your opinion) and why they seem important to you or the company
you work for.
2. For chapters with numbered exercises, listen to the
narration on the exercise slides. Provide your personal solution
to those exercises. Show the input data, the equations used, the
same equations with numerical values filled in, and the final
answer for each equation. For example:
Input Data: AAA = 6 CCC = 10 EEE = 1.5
1: GGG = AAA^2 / CCC = 6^2 / 10 = 3.6
2: HHH = 100 * (GGG + EEE) = 100 * (3.6 +1.5) = 510
Show units of measurement for each input and each answer eg Bcf,
weight fraction, kg/m3, etc
For exercises that require a spreadsheet, design your own or
adapt one from the Downloads page at
3. If the exercise contains only a visual exercise and does not
use equations, record your own personal answers in the same
format as the example shown in the course slide. Do not assume
that the answers in the example are correct - they are there
only as a guide. Listen to the exercise slide narration again to
see if there are any extra hints on what to look for. Also add a
sentence or two to explain what the numerical answers mean - eg
very shaly (or not), low or high porosity, presence of water
zones (or not), other pertinent details of interest to your
boss or team members.
4. For chapters that do not include any exercises, write a short
paragraph (100 to 200 words) describing the main points to be
learned from that chapter. Use your own words - not copy and
paste. Pretend you are telling your boss or other team members
what you learned from that chapter.
5. Answer all questions in each quiz.
6. Attach XLS spreadsheets and MS Word documents with your
Email to Me.
7. If your answers indicate that you understand the material you
studied, a Certificate of Proficiency will be emailed to you. If
you fail, you will be offered suggestions on how to improve and
will receive one further chance to submit improved results.
