In conducting its studies, IRT encourages participation of client staff. This participation provides hands-on training within the staff-member's area of interest, using the client's own reservoir(s). This transfer of technology can have long-lasting benefits to the client. IRT can tailor similar training in a course-like environment for a client that is not dependent on conducting any particular study.

Additionally, IRT staff have conducted training courses for many of the world's largest energy companies in various aspects of reservoir engineering, reservoir simulation and enhanced oil recovery. IRT currently offers two courses, building a reservoir static model and reservoir simulation that are taught at various times throughout the year or as an in-house class as requested.
