Training Classifications 


It is difficult to believe that the explosives and blasting industry does not use a standard classification for levels of training. We have consulted our expert associates and have created our own Explosives Training Classification Program.


Although this classification system was developed by AEG, we encourage other agencies, organizations and schools to adopt these standards. This system allows standardization for our industry. If someone states that are an experienced blaster or a Blaster in Charge, this can be varied and categorized using the same objective criteria. There is no royalty or fee for using this system.


The explosives training classification system is also beneficial to those who are applying to states that require a state blasters license or permit and need to verify training and experience.  Students and Alumni, we can validate your education and experience to give you a Category Level.  The following are the three C, B and A levels:

C Level Blaster in Training

  • Classroom: 16 to 40 hours

  • Experience: Up to one year

  • Can conduct fieldwork under the supervision of A and B Level Blasters

  • Classroom: 40 to 80 hours

  • Experience: Over one year, less than five years

  • Can conduct fieldwork under the supervision of an A Level BIC


B Level Experienced Blaster

  • Classroom: 40 to 80 hours

  • Experience: Over one year, less than five years

  • Can conduct fieldwork under the supervision of an A Level BIC


A Level Advanced Blaster

  • Classroom: Over 80 hours

  • Fieldwork: Over five years

  • Can manage, supervise and conduct blasting operations as a BIC

Once an A Level Advanced Blaster, they can become a Specialist in an area of expertise that

includes the following categories:

Avalanche, Breaching, Demolition. EOD-IED, General Construction, Instructor, K-9 Detection, Military Munitions, Pyrotechnic, Rock Quarry, Rock Underground, and Seismic Engineer.
