We have used the knowledge and experience gained through ASC’s range of projects and applications over the years to put together a series of practical and relevant training courses. These training courses are provided at different levels ranging from the basic level to advanced and can be delivered in-house (at our UK office or at the client’s office) or alternatively delivered remotely online. ASC can also provide and deliver custom training courses.

Contact us to register your interest for any of our scheduled courses or discuss the content and delivery of a course tailored to your application or area of interest.

Seismology and seismic processing

Induced seismicity workshop

Engineering operations such as those related with the extraction of energy and mineral resources result in associated fracturing and potentially the induction of felt seismic events.

This workshop discusses the factors controlling the induction of fracturing from engineering operations, the strategy for monitoring this and the information that can be extracted form the monitoring of seismic activity around engineering operations.

Downhole calibration in InSite

This short course will cover the tools in InSite-HF for the calibration of tools deployed in monitoring wells, including tool orientation and calibration of velocity models ahead of fracture monitoring. 

 Seismic array design


The course discusses the main variables that impact the performance of the seismic array, such as type of instruments, number of receivers and geometry. Hands-on exercises are included to simulate the performance of arrays in different scenarios and engineering applications. The course includes a 5-day licence of InSite-Design to work through the examples provided.


Fracturas: monitorización y caracterización sísmica.  


El curso será impartido online en español y combina aspectos teóricos y prácticos sobre procesos de fracturación asociados a distintas operaciones ingenieriles, enfocado en la aplicación de técnicas de interpretación sismológicas para la cuantificación y caracterización del proceso de fractura a distintas escalas. El curso se impartirá durante dos sesiones de 2 horas e incluye la licencia temporal de InSite-HF valida durante dos semanas para trabajar con los ejemplos mostrados durante el curso que cubrirán casos de fractura hidráulica, excavación de estructuras y ensayos de laboratorio. El curso está dirigido a ingenieros (minas, civil, materiales), geólogos, geofísicos y todos aquellos interesados en usar datos de monitorización sísmica para caracterizar procesos de fractura en materiales geológicos o ingenieriles.

InSite Short Courses

Seismic Processing Basics


Seismic, microseismic and acoustic monitoring is a unique tool to image fracture and deformation processes in rocks and brittle materials. This course guides the attendee through the main steps in the processing of seismic events with hands-on experience on real-life project data. This course is intended for those with some background in geophysics, geology, environmental sciences, mining and civil engineering and those interested in gaining a general understanding of seismic and microseismic events, how they are monitored and studied and how the data processing techniques are applied in both industry and research.


  • The seismic source
  • Seismic event parameters
  • Waveform processing
  • Event location

The course includes a 1-week licence of InSite-Geo to work through the examples provided


Seismic Processing Advanced

This course is designed for those that have followed the Seismic Processing Basics course and now wish to use the advanced tools in the InSite software to extract more information from the seismic record or using the advanced processing options for working on challenging datasets.


 Fracture imaging and geological storage

 Identifying, locating and characterising fractures, natural or induced, is a subject of interest in many research areas, from earth to material sciences and industrial applications such as civil engineering, geological storage and energy. This course will provide an overview on the application of acoustic and seismic monitoring in the investigation and imaging of fracturing processes both natural and induced. The course includes hands-on tutorials, processing real-life monitoring projects at different scales, from the laboratory to reservoir scales using ASC’s InSite seismic processor

 Geophysical imaging

An overview for non-specialists of the main geophysical methods applied to the imaging of the near-surface and engineering structures.

Software training

InSite Training

A course targeted at new users of InSite Seismic Processor covering the full workflow of working with seismic and acoustic data on InSite from setting up a project to processing and export of results. 

 InSite Short courses

A series of short 2-hour courses for users of the InSite seismic processing software, exploring advanced or lesser-known tools:

  • Source Scan location
  • Velocity model calibration in InSite-HF
  • Tool orientation
  • Optimising event location
