What We Teach

The course is focused on teaching participants how to produce aggregates in an efficient manner. It addresses current best practices in quarry operations with a focus on systems integration, economic sustainability, process improvement, overall cost reduction and the use of practical safety as a part of daily work behavior.


System Integration

The course aims at providing attendees an overall picture of the aggregate proces. Cost reduction and efficiency may be achieved in different stages of production and having an overall perspective of the process can impact operation efficiency. The fundamental topics of safety as a part of daily work behavior and some legal considerations are also contemplated as part of the training.


Economic Sustainability

The efficient use of quarrying resources is at the heart of this program. The course explores lean thinking, process improvement, quarry planning and metrics, load & haul practical cost improvement, and process optimization, among other topics.
