Then, 10 best students will be chosen to be trained to prepare for the IESO. This is essential in order to select the team that will compete in IESO. The students will be trained by the university lecturers and professionals from the related industries such as geology, geophysics, oceanography, astronomy and meteorology.

The students will be evaluated from their performance in the assignments, test, teamwork and communication during the training sessions. Top 4 best students will be chosen to undergo further training in the theoretical and practical part of earth science fields until the commencement of IESO 2023.

It is to be reminded that the training will focus on the higher level of each field in earth science, in both theoretical and practical aspects. The students will attend several training camps as planned by the coaching team.
