Aggregate Production
This is a three day introductory course taught both in the classroom and in the lab. It covers aspects of aggregate production and quality control testing. Subjects include: prospecting for aggregate, crushing and stockpiling, aggregate blending, process control, and effects of non-complying aggregate on construction. Test topics include aggregate sampling, splitting, gradations, aggregate specific gravity, moisture, spall identification, percent crushing, and other aggregate durability and quality tests. This course includes a hands-on performance review. This is done during the lab.

There is currently no level 2 or recertification course for aggregate production.
