Update 17 March 2020: The GPA Europe Young Professional Training Day 2020 has been Postponed due to the situation surrounding COVID-19.

We’re already working hard in the background to reschedule our Young Professional Training Day and will announce these plans once the situation has stabilised and circumstances are clearer.

A day dedicated to our Young Professionals organised by GPA Europe and hosted by TOTAL.

The Young Professional Training Day is designed for people, who have recently joined or are thinking of joining the energy industries.

Delegates are anticipated to have strong technical backgrounds or interests. The day is intended to help in understanding how your technical expertise can be applied within our industry. Our focus is on technical aspects seen in few other industries.


So what's in it for you?

Well, you’ll return to work with knowledge you didn’t have when you left. You’ll make contacts and meet people who can help you do your job better and build a broader career and, of course, because...

High quality training comes no cheaper than FREE.


How much?

It’s FREE. But take care, numbers are capped. Don’t delay in making your booking.

Delegates from non-member companies are welcome to attend for a fee of £100 / €115.

Accommodation is not included but there are several convenient hotels in the vicinity.


What?

The day has been designed by the GPA Europe Young Professional Committee and will focus in three areas:

  1. Digitilisation
  2. Carbon Capture, Ultilisation and Storage
  3. Acid Gas
