            My investment of time and money at CSM is the best investment I ever made. CSM teaches you to solve problems, deal with difficult situations, add value, and persevere. A degree from CSM brings the world to your feet. I've worked in numerous locations worldwide and had great experiences everywhere I've been. Miners have a can do spirit and look after each other as well, so it's great to be a member of the club.
