Who should take this course?

This course is a must for engineers and managers of mines that are concerned of blasting vibration at nearby residence. If your mine is consciously designing blast to control vibration, or using tools such as seismographs or signature hole studies then this course will be extremely valuable in teaching attendees how to properly use these for the best results.

This course is also great for the mining, explosive, or civil engineer that is working with or near blasting and wishes to learn the about blast vibrations.
