The Department of Earth Sciences of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra develops different courses of thematic training.

They can correspond to long, specialized, certificated courses, ministered in Portugal or abroad, in partnership, or not with other institutions. An example of this training is the Specialization Course in Regional Georesources, held in Dili in the year 2016/2017, with the support of the Institute of Petroleum and Geology of East Timor.

Short thematic training courses are annually scheduled, responding to the strategic vision of DCT and the interest expressed by different publics, and can be organized, or not, in partnership with external entities. Recent examples of this training include courses on "Project and supervision of groundwater captations" and " Integrated methodology for prospection, reserves evaluation and exploration planning: application to non-metallic resources", carried out in partnership with APG in November 2016 , The course "Advanced Course of Seismic Interpretation" conducted by the Geosciences Center in November 2016, or the Explosives course "Seminar on Explosives and Dismantling Operations" in partnership with AP3E in December 2016.

Training courses for primary and secondary school teachers, often in partnership with the Portuguese Association of Biology and Geology Teachers, are held periodically. An example is the one held on March 11, 2017, entitled "Geological Heritage and Geotourism".
