The price consists of education courses, testing, qualification certificate + 2 coffee breaks and lunch every day during the course.

Hotel packages will be provided additionally.

LEVEL I consists of testing received knowledge at the end of each day.  

The course grants participants a certificate of knowledge and status of LEVEL I, allowing them to apply for the next LEVEL II course. 

h – academic hour, 1 h = 45 min

There is a 30-minute knowledge test at the end of each day.

Additional info: 
The system of the course examination
– After each day (5) of the course we will provide a short (30 min) test. At the end of the last day, we will announce the results of the tests. If the participants’ results are >70%, we will grant them a Certificate confirming the passed course (with the list of topics), tests, and eligibility for the LEVEL II course. 
– We will organize an additional examination (30 min) at the end of the last day (Friday) for not successful participants to check their knowledge of all topics of the course. 
– In case of unsuccessful tests, the participant will receive the certificate without permission to attend the LEVEL II course.
p.s. At the end of each day, the participant will receive the link to the given material on the day of the course.

Circular economy in the extractive industry


Join the Massive Open Online Course “Circular economy in extractive industry” available for free on the Canvas Instructure platform

The course is taught at two levels:

Beginners – for those who want to learn more about the application of the circular economy approach in the extractive industry but do not have a background in mining, geology, or engineering

Advanced – for specialists such as engineers or managers with a background in mineral processing, mining or resource management and extraction

The course consists of six modules:

  1. Circular economy – principles and regulations
  2. Geo-activities with sustainable waste management
  3. Modern processing methods
  4. Environmental impact assessment
  5. Energy Storage in Abandoned Coal Mines – infrastructure CAES (iCAES)
