Introduction – Professional Development Centre In-depth courses have been developed for industry under the banner of The Professional Development Centre, the education and training arm of the Fossil Fuel Foundation. The programme of courses is under the directorship of well know coal analyst Xavier Prevost supported by a team of subject specialists. The courses run from 1 day to 3 days depending on the subject. The topics range from sampling and quality analysis of coal and associated hydrocarbon resources, through their exploration, production, utilisation, trade and marketing to advanced technologies in each sector to ensure high efficiency and low emissions (HELE). Alternative energy resources with the economic impacts will also be examined.
