Training courses for mining professionals are among the many services and activities carried out at Ayma Mining Solutions. These courses are aimed at experienced professionals who are looking to take their careers to the next level. We train industry leaders.
Are you ready to take the next step in your career? Registration for the upcoming course on Mine Ventilation, held at AYMA, begins on April 27th. The objective of this course –taking place from June 18th to 22nd, 2018, in Mairena del Aljarafe, Seville– is to provide in-depth knowledge about the theory, techniques, and processes of interior mine ventilation applied to hard rock mining. This course can also be completed with specialized simulation software, VentSim, in the second semester of the same year.
This course is aimed especially at mining engineers, technical engineers and graduate engineers, and in general, professionals who work in mine ventilation.
The course will be instructed by Rick Brake, an Australian mining engineer with more than 30 years of experience in both underground and open pit operations in Australia and North America. Brake´s CV and career path is highly admirable, and as for AYMA, we believe we couldn´t have found a better instructor for this course. He graduated with honors from the University of Queensland, received an MBA from the University of Deakin, and earned a PhD in physiology from the University of Curtin. He is a Fellow Member of AusIMM, the mine ventilation society of South Africa, and he is a member of the Minerals Industry Consultants Association of Australia.
In addition, he was the Ventilation Superintendent of 4 underground mines in Mount Isa in the mid-1980s. In 1999, he started his own consulting firm, Mine Ventilation Australia, which specialized in areas of mine ventilation and air conditioning, heat stress management, and egress and entrapment. His company provided consulting services for numerous underground mines in Australia, China, Southeast Asia, and Africa. He is a highly reputable instructor with considerable experience and has delivered numerous courses and seminars on mine ventilation, egress and entrapment, and heat stress management, and he has published more than 30 technical articles on these subjects. In 2017, he received the “Howard Hartman” award, one of the most prestigious mining ventilation awards in the world, and was the first non-North American to receive it.
