International Training Program

The 2016 International Course was a tremendous success!

2016 GroupParticipants this year came from Korea, Chile, Indonesia, Costa Rica, Peru, Nicaragua, Philippines, and China.

Orientation DayFor the first day of class, David Carvalho serenaded the group with songs about volcanoes, and we practiced “Drop, Cover & Hold!”

OutreachParticipants learned about Public Outreach: Left, Armen Putra (Indonesia) makes a model volcano erupt. Right: Hu Yaxuan (China), Sergio Morales (Chile), and Rosa Anccasi (Peru) examine minerals. Center: Carlos Viquez used graphite to sign our Autograph Book.
