This paper presents a road map for providing training to experienced geoscientists, engineers, and data scientists who seek to participate in geothermal energy exploration, development, and integration. The road map starts by identifying the foundational skills and knowledge base of experienced geoscientists and engineers, and then specifically discusses which elements are of direct value in geothermal energy development. The paper then discusses the best strategies for upscaling skills and closing knowledge gaps, as well as pathways for immediate implementation of the knowledge in the form of planning documents and projects. The final stage of the road map includes assessment and designing collaborative challenges so that teams learn how best to work together and achieve their goals. The final section of the paper includes brief case studies of two examples of retooled geothermal education offered by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).
