Distance Learning Programs Now Enrolling for 2017-2018

Aggregates industry professionals who want to improve their skills while staying on the job can now enroll in the 2017-2018 NSSGA/Institute of Quarrying distance learning programs, the one-year Graduate/Management Conversion Program and the three-year Junior Management Program.

These programs—which are overseen by NSSGA’s Meetings & Education Committee—combine online educational content, accessed through a learning management system, with two in-person tutorial sessions at NSSGA’s Legislative & Policy Forum/Fall Board Meeting and the 2018 Annual Convention and AGG1 Academy & Expo.

The programs will commence during the Legislative & Policy Forum/Fall Board Meeting in Washington, D.C., Sept. 24-28. “The program kickoff in Washington is designed to get participants off to the best possible start,” said Joel Galassini of CEMEX, chair of the Meetings & Education Committee. “Based on feedback from past students, we’re providing additional opportunities for attendees to engage in-person with each other and with the instructors, and to get an intensive introduction to learning material that can be challenging.” Registration for the Legislative & Policy Forum is complimentary for distance learning participants using promo code NSSGAIQ.
