The course builds experience in:
- Driving, loading, tipping, reversing an parking up
- Emergency braking techniques
- Incline and decline hauling
- 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.
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.
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. No one can guarantee a job after completing a training course, no matter which industry you are working in. What we do know is that this qualification is absolutely essential if you want to drive a big haul truck in the mines.
