The Nationally recognised RIIMPO311D Conduct Rigid Haul Truck Operations qualification is training course that provides you will skills to be able to drive haul trucks on a mine or quarrying site in Australia.
Dump Truck Training
The dump truck training course is held on a mining lease about 45 minutes west of Brisbane. This course developed after consultation with mining companies and industry safety representatives.
The course builds experience in:
- Driving, loading, tipping, reversing an parking up
- Wet weather driving and evasive manoeuvres
- Emergency braking techniques
- Incline and decline hauling
- Pre-Start safety checks
- Daily load count recording
The trainers are mine-experienced, they know the common problems that haul truck drivers face and they structure the course around these issues.
The dump truck course is quite flexible in terms of the number of days to complete. Depending on the type of course and the requirements of the student, there are 1 day and 5 day courses to choose from.
Courses can be customised and combined with a Standard 11 Mining Induction course, which prepares all students for working on Queensland mines, both coal and metaliferous mines like gold, copper, zinc etc. It is also possible to combine the dump truck course with a light vehicle (4WD) course or even a water truck or excavator course.

Dump Truck Operator Jobs
One of the most common questions asked before people take part in the course is “Can I get a job once I finish my training?”. That’s not an easy question to answer in so much as to say, no one can guarantee a job after completing a training course – of any type.
There are a lot of factors at play here, and it would take a couple of hours to explain them.
However, consider this…
The RIIMPO338D – Conduct Rigid Haul Truck Operations qualification is nationally recognised. Applying for dump truck operator jobs without having the RIIMPO311A included on a resume will most probably result in a rejected application.
