Training and Education

We believe that training and education is a continuing, life-long endeavor, and we encourage our employees to participate in the many training and educational programs available at Unimin. Classroom seminars and web-based technical training ensure our team is informed, educated and equipped with the most current methods and technologies. Topics like safety and health, engineering and industrial operations, geology and the environment, and leadership and managerial skills continually prepare our employees for the next challenge and job responsibility.

Unimin also sponsors a New Graduate Training Program (NGTP) to provide engineers and technically-oriented employees with immediate and substantive exposure to the many facets of our operations. The NGTP program allows new employees to work in a number of different departments and to interact with our management team before deciding on any one department in which to work.

"The New Graduate Training Program has been extremely valuable. I've been to most plants in the US and Canada and met people throughout the Company. The experience helped me choose a career path that takes advantage of my strengths."
