Back to the field...2022 round up
The end of October signified the end of a busy, successful and safe field season having run 20 field courses in different locations that included France, Ireland, Spain, and the United States (California, Colorado, New Mexico, South Carolina, Texas, and Wyoming).
1st December 2022
We were delighted to see such great interest and enthusiasm from our clients to get back into the field to obverse, study, and “taste” the rocks after the pandemic hiatus.
The 2022 field season also provided a great opportunity for our newest team members to either go through their H&S field training induction or, for those already inducted, use their new skills on their first solo assignments as RPS field representatives. For our seasoned field representatives, it was their chance to polish their unique skills.
