Courses

Petroleum Landman School's courses provide an interactive learning environment which cover subjects such as title research, well status reports, regulatory requirements, creating accurate reports, understanding the many clauses of the oil and gas lease, wind farm lease, easements/ right-of-way agreements, oil and gas working interest and net revenue calculations, title curative issues and documents, and much more.


Few professions require more diversity of knowledge and skills and when considering the fact that no well is ever drilled, no wind tower, cellular tower, or pipeline is ever constructed without the services of a landman, the importance of the landman’s role cannot be overemphasized.


We have worked very hard to design comprehensive courses with principles and practical usage throughout each in the United States.


Take our video courses online, wherever and whenever is convenient for you. With online testing and the option to attend our in-person classes at no extra cost, this truly is an advanced learning platform.


We offer regular in-person classroom training with the most knowledgeable, seasoned industry veteran instructors. Get a jumpstart on your career as a Petroleum Landman and truly Know What We Know.


Our workshops are designed to provide you real-world hands on training to offer you the skills and confidence you need to succeed from day one.


​Students have 90 days to get through each course. Upon written request ​this time-frame can be extended, but not ​to exceed an additional 90 days. If you ​wish to attend a live class you can without additional tuition fees within the timeframe stated above.


​Many of our courses are offered both online and in a classroom setting. ​How do you determine which version ​of a course is ​best for you? Some people learn better in a classroom setting​ while ​others tend to learn better at home. Also, the need for a more flexible learning schedule or ​geographic location restrictions make​ online ​courses more appropriate for some students. Whether you choose to take a course online or in a classroom, the materials offered are the same!
