Metso, like its customers, understands the pressures imposed by rapidly changing technology, and the need to do more with less. In this new business environment, education and training programs have even greater importance in the maintenance and development of a company’s intellectual capital, arguably it’s most important asset. To address the needs of the plant operators, Metso Technology Development has developed a unique computer based training system (CBT). It focuses on generic principles aimed at equipping people with the knowledge to make safer, faster and better decisions.

Grinding 2 - Unit Operations is a course for process engineers, mill operators and mineral processing students. This course is the second of a suite of three courses on grinding engineering from Metso Performance Solutions... the companion titles are Grinding 1 - Fundamentals and Grinding 3 - Circuits. Topics covered by this course include Tumbling Mills, Cyclones, Cone Crushers, Vibrating Screens and Auxiliary Equipment.

In recent years the mineral processing industry has downsized its labor force, installed new technology with larger equipment and incorporated plant wide automation, all in an effort to improve productivity and performance while maintaining operating cost at a minimum. As a consequence of these actions the operator is now required to make more and better informed decisions. To meet the educational needs at the mill operation level Metso has developed a Computer Based Mill Operator Education Program. The full program includes a suite of mineral processing courses for mill operators and process engineers on Grinding and Flotation which have been adapted for Web presentation on Edumine.

The program is presented by Edumine as online self-paced, self-learning courses. The courses include online certification as well as performance tracking and reporting. For information on the courses, contact

Well-trained operators mean higher profits, more throughput, safer operation, better morale, better grade and recovery and improved communication.
