Graduate Certificate Course

CDA has partnered with Robert Gordon University (RGU) to develop a Graduate Certificate in Petroleum Data Management, aiming to promote the understanding of subsurface exploration and production data management, recognising its importance to upstream oil and gas businesses.

The first intake of the course commenced in September 2016, delivered entirely online through RGU’s virtual learning environment. The course was designed with input from across the industry, and is aimed at both new entrants to Data Management, as well as those who are currently in the role and who wish to formalise their knowledge and experience.

In July 2017, fourteen students from across the globe were the very first to be awarded a Graduate Certificate in Petroleum Data Management. The second intake of the course began in September 2017.

In December 2017 CDA won an award for the innovative development of this course: Best eLearning / Online Education in the UK Association Awards.

Applications are open for September 2018
