Just one more thing….
A person can start by entering College courses, for Mining at Vincennes University or Wabash Valley College. Takes at least 4yrs of experience to receive all certifications, but after two yrs a person can start getting certified in each of the above areas. If a person starts the College route, it is a lot faster, 2 to 4 years, I went the old way, on the job experience, it took me 13 years, now I have 34 years, and I am still adding to my Certification list.
