The Tailings Center to begin training courses March 22
New industry standards of care and regulatory requirements for tailings facilities drive the need for an increase in the number of, and training available for, engineers and scientists to meet the requirements of improved safe design, construction operation, and closure of tailings facilities. To meet this growing need, three major universities in the United States have combined forces to form the Tailings Center. These universities are the Colorado School of Mines (Mines), Colorado State University (CSU), and the University of Arizona (Arizona). The Tailings Center is launching its 2021 training program in March.
The Tailings Center has developed six short courses that provide registrants with an understanding of the Fundamentals of Tailings Management. All courses will be offered online, and all content will be available both synchronously and asynchronously. Registrants will have access to the course content for three months after completion of the course. Courses may be taken individually, or all six courses can be taken in sequence earning a Tailings Center certificate of completion. The target audience for these courses are those who seek additional basic knowledge on tailings management.
The six courses and the schedule for them are described at the web site. All courses are online, and you may enroll in one or all – and when all six have been taken, you will receive a certificate from the Tailings Center.
The first course begins on March 22.
