Geotechnical Training

Working in response to the increasing focus on geotechnical awareness within the extractive industry, MP Skills is proud to be at the forefront of developing a range of comprehensive geotechnical courses. Our investment into the geotechnical arena is part of our commitment to proactively identifying, designing and delivering high quality training solutions that address a specific skills requirement in the sector.

Promoting safe geotechnical awareness for organisations dealing with stockpiles and tips

Our geotechnical courses have proven popular with a number of organisations in the quarrying, surface mining and waste recycling industries; specifically those dealing with stockpiles and tips.

Identified as a critical area for growth within the extractives industry, our geotechnical courses include a particular focus on ensuring safe working practices around tips, stockpiles and excavations.
