Mathew Dunk

Really enjoyed the course and the relevance of the material. The subjects and technologies taught are really up to date with the current status of the mining industry.

Craig Tannous

I have really enjoyed this course. I have started a few before and never been really motivated to finish. But though the EIT I have been excited from beginning to end. A lot of people in the mining industry in South Africa would gain excellent knowledge through doing the courses offered by EIT. Thank you also for your friendly help all the time. We don't often see such professionalism here and its quite an eye opener at what service can be.

Edward Cheek

Very relevant to my vocation. Enjoyed the practical side.
