Investing in the Mining Engineers of the Future
The Moly-Cop Tools software has been helping Mining Engineers and Metallurgists for over 25 years. To support our customers to utilize the software, Moly-Cop regularly conducts in-house training on the practical application of the software with customers around the globe.
What is not widely understood is that Moly-Cop also conducts regular training on the application of Moly-Cop Tools in Universities and Secondary training colleges. Our Technical team regularly perform training as part of several mining engineering courses in the Americas. Gustavo Alcazar, Country Manager for Moly-Cop in Chile, says "We are very honored that our University partners recognise the benefit of training their students in the application of Moly-Cop Tools". "It is a great credit to the technical skills of our team and the regard held for the Moly-Cop Tools software and training package".
