The Institute of Quarrying
The Institute of Quarrying is the international professional body for quarrying, construction materials and the related extractive and processing industries, with over 6,000 members in some 50 countries of the world. Membership is open to individuals, rather than companies, and the Institute’s long-term objective is to promote progressive improvements in all aspects of operational performance through the medium of education and training.
The Institute believes education and training is a lifelong opportunity which should be viewed in the broadest terms, starting with initial qualifications gained at college, university or through distance learning programmes. This is followed by continuing professional development through attendance at conferences, seminars, training courses, competence assessment schemes, workshops, technical meetings, site visits and the updating of knowledge by reading the Institute’s journals, technical and management papers and handbooks.
