a) Part 1: Theoretical course at SPSU for 15 days during May to June 2017. The curriculum will include geology and mineral resources of the international seabed area; deposits of cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts; methods and technology required in exploration for cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts; and geological and commercial assessment of the deposits of cobalt-rich manganese crusts; and

b) Part 2: At-sea training on board the R/V GELENDZHIK in the area of the Magellan Seamounts of the Pacific Ocean for approximately 60 days during June – July 2017. Trainees will participate in practical geological work.
