Marine Geophysical Workshop

RIL have developed a one-day corporate workshop titled ‘High-resolution Marine Geophysical Investigations for Offshore Structures’. This unique course is essential for anyone working on offshore wind farm developments in a project management, technical engineering, or geotechnical capacity.

The course can be undertaken in your own premises and each delegate receives a set of comprehensive, colour, course notes. The course is presented by Professor John M. Reynolds, author of the acclaimed geophysics textbook ‘An introduction to applied and environmental geophysics’, and internationally-sought-after speaker. He has over 42 years’ experience of near-surface geophysics and has extensive recent experience of the offshore wind industry. When this course has been presented previously, delegates have graded the course content, notes, presenter, and overall course each as ‘excellent’.

In June 2011, this course was formally endorsed by the Geological Society. The course is worth 6 hrs CPD for each delegate. The course material is updated regularly to reflect latest changes in technology and procedures. It can be modified to suit different geographical regions around the world (i.e. in relation to appropriate local regulations and standards).

Under prevailing Covid-19 conditions, a suitably modified version of the course can be provided virtually.

"CEGS have known of Reynolds International Ltd, previously Reynolds Geo-Sciences Ltd, since the mid-1990s and have utilised their services over the years for specific surveying in the former underground coal and iron ore fields of West Cumbria. As a lead consultant, we have used Reynolds International to successfully locate and define both the underground workings and the mine entries that pose a hazard to the built environment, especially shafts in the iron ore workings. Additionally, we have also enrolled on the CPD training courses that are organised by Professor John Reynolds and these provide an invaluable update to our professional skills. We will continue to use Reynolds International as our preferred specialist Geophysical consultancy because of the consistent high professional standards that are applied to every project."

"The British Embassy, Bucharest, has been working with Professor John Reynolds, of Reynolds International Ltd, since 2008 in order to ensure that the Embassy’s earthquake and emergency planning is up to date; and that all staff, dependents and the British community, for which the Embassy has a responsibility, are briefed on the causes, the preparations and the relevant actions in the event of an earthquake. Professors Reynolds’s knowledge, advice and guidance has been invaluable in ensuring that the embassy’s plan is as up to date and in an as workable format as possible. His knowledge is second to none and his guidance is clear concise and in an understandable format."

"The earthquake preparedness training course provided by Professor John M. Reynolds for BAT Romania’ employees during 3 days in February this year was a well designed and tailored course given the high seismic hazard area where Romania is located. The main aim of the course was to provide our employees with necessary information to help them to reduce their own vulnerability at work, in their out-of-work activities and in their family lives. I was very pleased with the results of the training and, most importantly, I have received very positive feedback from participants. I recommend this course for other commercial organizations in Romania or abroad."
