Virtual Quarry 101

Register now for Quarry 101 – online! Virtual Quarry 101 takes this comprehensive eight-hour course and offers it in four two-hour online sessions, Oct. 30 - Nov. 2, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. EDT each day.


The intent of Quarry 101 is to provide a broad perspective for personnel who know their particular job very well but may lack the overarching understanding of the entire process and how they, personally, contribute to the entire team effort. This course is ideal for those new to the industry or those employees who may not work in a quarry or pit.


Quarry 101 is presented by Built for the Mine, which is a partnership between Luck Companies, Vulcan Materials, Virginia Tech, Austin Powder, Epiroc, Carter Machinery, Caterpillar, and Paschal Associates. Attendees will learn from expert instructors from these companies. Proceeds from registration fees go toward scholarships for students pursuing careers in quarrying.


Attendees will learn the basics of the quarrying process, including: Exploration and site location, basic operations such as blasting, loading and hauling, maintenance, interacting with neighbors and the community, health, safety and environmental considerations, types of products produced and site reclamation.
