Kick-off meeting

On 17-18 October 2016 PECCS partners gathered to Oslo for a good Kick-off meeting. Finally after three years of waiting, we are able to continue with our work in order to create a new EFEE Shotfirer Competency certificate. 

            The following years will be busy. The next months will be dedicated to working with existing materials (in case of interest, please find the materials under Learning Materials) – the tasks consist of modernizing the materials, adding exercises and examining questions. 

During the first  meeting we also made some very important decisions about the future of PECCS. The next step after working with materials are Test courses. The partners have now decided on the most suitable length of the test courses and also agreed on the teachers for the courses. 

So all who are interested, please prepare yourself for 3 day courses in autumn 2017, starting early in the morning and lasting for 8 hours minimum, which means that travelling should be done a day before and a day after. 

The first course will be held in Sweden, exact dates are yet to be set. The courses will consist of the following subjects: Explosives and Initiation Systems; Geology /Rock Type?; Blasting theory; Drilling and Machinery; Blasting Close to Structures; Tunneling; Vibration and Environment
