The Institute of Quarrying

The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) – the international professional body for the quarrying and mineral extractives industry – will be showing the benefits of its membership and training services. For more than 100 years IQ has supported people in the development of their skills and careers. IQ membership is open to individuals across all roles in the industry, and as a person’s experience in the industry grows, their IQ membership evolves with them. The Institute has a long history of providing respected and relevant training for the industry. Through the IQ Academy, courses are tailored to suit the different needs of learners. With different learning formats available, they also deliver value to business. Believing passionately in the benefits of lifelong learning through continuing professional development, IQ created the IQ Skills Wheel to show how to build skills across different knowledge areas.
