New in 2023: an exclusive new course in a 100% e-learning format

Geology and geotechnics for development projects

The French power-grid operator, RTE (Réseau de Transport d'Électricité), and BRGM have combined their expertise to develop an exclusive e-learning course. With its engaging and stimulating content, this 7-hour individual course is split into 3 main modules that you can follow at your own pace to develop your geology and geotechnics skills in complete autonomy:

  • The nature of rocks and soils
  • The mechanics of rocks and soils
  • Geological and geotechnical project studies

Aimed at professionals working in the field of urban and spatial planning, this online training course is delivered via BRGM Formation's e-learning platform. It provides course participants with a solid foundation of knowledge in geology and geotechnics, enabling them to improve their management and use of the subsurface and the quality of the solutions implemented, while controlling the technical solutions and costs of each decision more effectively.
