In his 2008 book, Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell popularised the idea that it takes 10,000 hours of practice or experience in a given subject to become an expert.
Whether you are a rock star or a rocket scientist, Gladwell drew on a number of studies which have made a direct connection between the amount of experience you have and your expertise in a subject.
Simple enough, perhaps, but the challenge you face is clearly the fact that you don’t have the luxury of 10,000 hours to devote to getting to grips with a new field.
The good news is, now you don’t have to.
The Oil and Gas Fundamentals team has hand-picked industry experts to lead the introductory courses featured on this site who have developed this expertise over the course of decades in the industry to help you cut through the clutter and understand the essentials of their specialist subjects in the fastest time possible.
