What are past students saying about the course?
“I have been in the aggregates industry for 15 years and have been hard pressed to find such a comprehensive course as what the NSSGA & IQ have offered. I did not have a formal mining education and had to learn on the go. This course has bridged that gap and given me more tools and reinforced confidence in important business decisions. The curriculum was engaging and focused and did not interfere with a busy schedule and the professors were quick to lend a hand when needed. The knowledge I gained was put into practice immediately and will stay with me throughout my career.”2015-2016 program participant
“For me, because I am new to the ACM industry, it was an excellent way for me to catch up with the managers so I could understand and speak the same language. The course has provided me a detailed overview in aggregate process, transportation, production and reclamation. It has also provided me a basic understand of cement processes and production. So, for me, it’s been a awesome resource.”2015-2016 program participant
