The new ECORD Train­ing Course will provide a “Vir­tual Drill­ship Ex­per­i­ence” for sci­ent­ists from aca­demia and in­dustry. This one-week course of­fers a ba­sic train­ing fo­cus­ing on the IODP core flow pro­ced­ures, pre­par­ing the par­ti­cipants for sail­ing in an off­shore drill­ship ex­ped­i­tion, and in­stilling them with an ap­pre­ci­ation for high stand­ards in all kinds of cor­ing pro­jects. IODP-style lab ex­er­cises will form the found­a­tion of the ECORD Train­ing Course fol­low­ing the pat­tern of the unique “Vir­tual Ship” ap­proach de­veloped for the Bre­men ECORD Sum­mer Schools.

The training course will focus on areas such as virtual shipboard work at BCR/MARUM, as well as drilling targets and strategies, amongst other topics.
