Dr. Paul Worsey, professor of mining engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology, will direct the university’s Annual Blasters Training Seminar. The course fulfills the training requirement for the Missouri State Blaster’s license and will be held March 8-10, at the St. Charles Convention Center in St. Charles, Mo.

The Annual Blaster’s Training Seminar is a 20-hour course that provides participants with basic training for blasting in the crushed stone and construction industries. It is of invaluable use for individuals concerned with other aspects of blasting, such as those used by underground mines and utility companies. The course also acquaints participants with federal and state purchase, transportation and storage regulations. Experienced blasters and engineers may use the course as both a refresher and an update on new products, blasting techniques and regulations, as well as to enhance their blasting knowledge and skills.

Worsey has more than 25 years of explosives and blasting experience and more than 15 years involvement in blasting training. He has been on television networks such as TLC (The Learning Channel), the History channel, the National Geographic Channel and the Discovery Channel. He recently co-hosted “The Detonators” series on the Discovery Channel. Worsey has also been featured on the front page of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the New York Times Science Section.
