FACT Training: Offers many short courses to train oil and gas professionals, and others who may need to acquire an understanding of upstream technologies. Such courses are either given publicly or through in-house training that could be tailor made to the client specifications. Aside from several courses taught by Dr. Fred Aminzadeh and/or a carefully chosen distinguished list of instructors, highlighted under FACT Faculty, teach courses in their respective areas of expertise. Courses could also be designed to more closely relate to the needs of the client.
