SPA merge with MPQC
From the 1st March 2013, SPA formed an alliance with MPQC (Mineral Products Qualifications Council) and recreated the Quarry package which has now become Mineral Products. The change has seen a new package put together by MPQC, which contains an updated PowerPoint, assessments, photographs and a chance for delegates to gain a module which forms part of a QCF qualification.
With the view to make the passport mandatory by September 2014 and with over 80 of the new course already to have ran, the merge has been welcomed by many. For any more information on the course please contact the SPA office.
