R.King & Co. Operations Manager, Gaylan Pinkerton, is participating in two programs to ensure that our company stays current on all aspects of minerals development and management.
The University of Texas at Austin Petroleum Extension has developed a program for those who want to pursue knowledge in petroleum land-related activities. The program is approved by the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) and the State Bars of Texas and Oklahoma. Upon completion of the program, Gaylan will receive a Certificate of Completion from UT Austin-PETEX and be qualified to obtain certification from The AAPL.
The National Association of Royalty Owners (NARO) created the Certified Minerals Manager (CMM) Program in 1991. The program’s mission is to provide unique educational opportunities and credentials for individuals wishing to improve their minerals management skills for personal or job-related use, including those who provide such professional services to others.
Gaylan is pursuing Professional Level Certification which is structured for the individual who is currently involved in any aspect of the management, administration or development of oil and gas properties. The CMM Program provides information in specialized areas largely unavailable through other sources and greatly enhances professional knowledge, qualifications and credentials.
The Professional Level Candidate must complete a minimum of fifty continuing education hours and sit for three stages of examinations administered by NARO. In November, 2012, Gaylan will complete these requirements by sitting for the Stage III Certification Examination at the annual NARO Convention. Upon successful completion of all stages of the certification examinations Gaylan will be awarded a Certified Minerals Manager Certificate.
