    Other accomplishments:

    DVD
    Designed and produced the DVD Haul Road and Dump Site Berms currently being distributed by MSHA.
    Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) technology means more interactivity is available to both student and instructor. Use DVD for self-study or classroom presentations. No longer are passive learning and the teacher-centered approach, the only option available. With a DVD equipped computer or a DVD desktop player linked to your television, you control the sequence, the pace, and select materials important to you.
    Use the DVD to customize your training. Vary the length of your study time. Make your training sessions 10 minutes, several hours or several days. The flexibility of the DVD program helps reinforce a positive and effective learning environment.
    Menus quickly show the program content. Navigate through the program with easy-t o-use controls and buttons. With an Internet-connected computer, easily accessed web sites are available.
