At long last, we are pleased to introduce the Lease Certificate Program. Designed to teach lease and title analysts and other land professionals in the oil and gas industry, the knowledge, and skills necessary to be a competent and effective lease and title analyst.

The oil and gas lease is the foundation of every oil and gas exploration and production company. Leases and titles are the greatest assets a company can own, and the role of the oil and gas personnel (lease and title analysts) who oversee and manage these documents is fundamental for the success of the company.

This six-month, six module (one month per module) course is taught by land management expert Alyce Hoge. All modules use a variety of teaching tools, including video lessons, field trips, class projects and assignments to engage the students and make the learning sticky.
