Gas Certification Institute (GCI) has released the 2021 class schedule for our fundamental measurement classes and SCADA training class. In 2021, we are preparing to offer classes in-person at our training facility in Houston, Texas.
We understand that circumstances may change because of the global pandemic or some students may have concerns about the in-person training environment. We will certainly aim to be responsive to any relevant changes or health issues that arise in 2021. This includes the flexibility to shift some classes to the interactive online training environment that we created in 2020, if needed.
Our goal, though, is to resume in-person training on the fundamentals of gas and liquid measurement and SCADA to provide measurement professionals with hands-on learning and education. After completing the training, oil and gas professionals will be equipped to return to the field or to their role with confidence. With that in mind, we are prepared to offer the following training classes in 2021.
