The AGG1 Academy focuses on aggregate producers, suppliers and customers, and all levels of industry professionals, from operators to foremen to managers, can benefit. Sessions are arranged by presentation tracks covering the following topics:

  • Operations & Production: These classes cover virtually every aspect of plant operations, production and equipment maintenance, from 101-level courses to the latest technologies, techniques and products that aggregate producers are using to process aggregates and manage their fleets in creative and innovative ways.
  • Automation, Technology & Software: Automation and advanced technologies help companies improve efficiency, employee safety, product quality, information management and cost reductions. Attendees of these sessions can learn automation basics, discover new ideas and technologies being applied to aggregate production, and find out how emerging technologies are changing the way they do business.
  • Environment, Safety & Health: These sessions demonstrate best practices and techniques for the aggregates industry to be efficient, safe, healthy and environmentally responsible.
  • Business Management: Running an aggregates operation is about more than equipment and processes. These classes focus on the business of an operation, including understanding business and financial principles, dealing with the surrounding community, and ways to market and sell product.
