Mining companies are confronted by major challenges, such as declining ore grades, volatility in commodity prices, security risks and safety concerns. Cutting-edge solutions are needed for sustainable operational excellence and technological advances and innovations.
This short course covers the basics and key elements of Open Pit Mine Planning and Design starting at the geological resource model, through to the reserve statement and including all aspects of the value chain.
The UP Enterprises Initial Aviation Occurrence Investigation Course (IOIC) is a compacted but detailed Outcomes-Based (OBE) training course at aim to serve the Aviation Community in order to augment one of their principal objectives: Aviation Safety. Moreover, it will enhance the Aviation Operator’s compliance to the obligatory Safety Management System as required by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) Regulations.
The short course entitled Water Analysis, Monitoring and Plant Operation is specifically designed to update attendees on the most current methods for sampling, analysis and data management that have recently emerged globally.
The Water Quality Management and Effluent Treatment short course provides you with a comprehensive overview of and practical insights into the various processes that are involved in the evaluation of drinking water quality, as well as water and wastewater treatment. The course covers topics of basic water microbiology and chemistry, biological treatment processes, sludge treatment and effluent disposal, as well as biological, chemical and physical water quality parameters, the flow of material and mass balances, among others.
The aim of this course is to provide field-based demonstrations of Aerial Surveying using Unmanned Aerial Vehicle to acquire ultra-high resolution imagery of the study area, which will later (in the lab) be used to generate various geographic information products such as orthophoto, point clouds, digital elevation models (DEMs), digital surface models (DSMs) and detailed mapping from high spatial-resolution orthomosaic image. In particular, the detailed mapping of various land surface entities can be mapped accurately on the produced high resolution image.
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can play a key role in helping scientists, decision-makers, and the public develop collaborative solutions to real-world problems. GIS mapping tools have become imperative for many fields, such as epidemiology, veterinary science, urban planning and environmental assessment. The Applied Geographical Information Systems short course is an introduction to a range of geospatial techniques used in the analysis of spatial data. Practical case studies are employed to help you confront real world problems and design a solution using GIS.
The short course in the Introduction to Multidisciplinary Concepts in Railway Engineering is ideal for a professional from any engineering discipline who already has reasonable (or intention to gain) experience in the railway operations environment. During this course, you will not only be introduced to the multidisciplinary aspects and concepts of railway engineering, but you will also be equipped with unparalleled knowledge of the basic principles of and general background to the field with a specific focus on how railway transport systems operate.
The Introduction to Mining short course is specifically designed to provide non-mining personnel who play a support function to the mining core and/or suppliers to the mining industry, with fundamental knowledge and insight into mining operations. Aimed at professional people who do not necessarily have a mining engineering degree or diploma, you can acquire a better understanding of the mining process through this course if you are already working on a mine, work for a mine supplier or own shares in mines.
The Digital Forensics and Investigations short course teaches you the basic theoretical concepts, as well as the practical applications of digital forensics i.e. how to conduct digital forensic investigations. This course is designed for a wide range of people such as law enforcers, crime investigators, managers in larger organisations, technical personnel in larger organisations, and anyone else interested in a general background of digital forensics.
