The actual time and content of the course vary with the experience of the trainees, both in blasting and in software of this type. For first timers, the emphasis is on covering all of the basics and relevant analysis tools in the remaining time. For the more experienced, the emphasis is on analysis, data structures, and specialised design techniques.
All of this is also dependent on the number of trainees and the amount of time available. Generally, three days is sufficient to cover all of the basics and some advanced applications for a average sized and experienced group (4-6), but less than three days is possible with a small, experienced group. A large group (8+) usually requires a minimum of four days or a longer working day.
A typical outline of the training for JKSimBlast for Surface Blasting for an average group at advanced level is show below. Underground and Tunnel blasting follow a similar agenda, but usually require slightly more time in design basics because of the nature of orientating and laying out underground blasts. As the group gets bigger or the overall skill level goes down, the time required grows.
Day 1 - Basics
Day 2 - Advanced Design
Day 3 - Analysis and Management
The training schedule can be varied to accommodate any specific interests, particularly to incorporate current blast designs, but also to develop a design procedure and customise the software during the course to fit in with or adapt to your current design and implementation process.
Training rates are charged on a daily basis, but vary depending on the number of trainees and whether any extra time is required. Travel, accommodation and other expenses are charged at cost. Contact Soft-Blast for details.
