Life has been made simpler by the final parting of the ways with Edumine Canada who -- many years ago -- took our book, split it in two and marketed it as "online courses" for 10 times the price of a print copy. They have "retired" said "courses", so I am now free to offer my services in North America without any conflict of interest. Cannot provide you with a certificate from UBC but can offer the best and most practical geostatistics training going at very reasonable fees!
Anyone out there willing to host such a course or maybe organise a tour, please let me know! Have experience, can teach, can do, can consult, will travel at the drop of a hat to any venue of your choice.
I am back in South Africa for a couple of months and then home for Christmas. Open to offers before, during or after.

Zero to Kriging: As the name suggests, this course takes interested students from no knowledge of statistics or geostatistics through to the mysteries of ordinary kriging and its variants in 30 hours (or less). This is a classroom course and includes manual exercises to reinforce understanding of the techniques. Contact Isobel for information re venues.

Practical Geostatistics This course is 3 days which are equivalent to Zero to Kriging with lectures augmented by practical PC/laptop-based exercises covering many different applications. Contact Isobel if you have questions about this.

BYO Geostatistics: This course allows the participant to analyse his/her own data using the Geostokos Toolkit under supervision. Tutorial data sets are provided to accustom the student to the software. Recent courses have attracted participants with applications varying from sea-bird protection zones, river pollution, pests in orange groves to more traditional(?) applications such as groundwater hydrology and geological resource estimation. Contact Isobel for local information re venue, accommodation and so on.

Real Geostatistics: Described as an "intermediate" course on geostatistics, this two-day seminar uses case studies to illustrate the use of geostatistical methods in a variety of applications
