Supervisor Education Program

Upon purchasing the course or using a voucher, students will have 3 months to complete the course and 3 attempts at the final exam.
For members the course costs $175.
For non members the cost is $400.
Blasting is a process at many of our member mine sites. AMSA wanted to create a course to help blasters, supervisors and mine owners. We launched this course in June 2020.

The course is comprised of 4 modules and a final exam. There is no cost for this course.
