Mining Induction Course

Take the first steps to securing yourself a high paying mining job

Mine site employment can be an amazing opportunity for you to realistically earn $100,000 + per year – even if you’re just starting out!

However, such lucrative salaries means there is a lot of competition to get those high paying mining jobs. So when you apply for a mining job you need to be sure you’re going to stand out from the other people who are competing for the same mining job as you are.

Mining companies are looking for people who have the best skills, attitude, relevant training and qualifications. If you’re just starting out on your mining career, you need to know what kind of workers mining companies are looking to hire?

Therefore, it is very important that you up-skill yourself with the best mine-ready training available.

Having the best training under your belt, knowing what employers are looking for and how to present yourself in the best possible light and speak with potential employers, you’ll be heads-above the other candidates who are competing for the same jobs.

Do you know what is one of the most fundamentally important aspects of training on a mine site?….SAFETY!

Mining companies want to ensure that they have an impeccable safety record for many reasons. Of course, they want to ensure that all their workers are kept safe, happy and injury free.

However, they are also financially motivated to ensure that they have an extremely safe work environment. If employees are injured on a mine site, the mining company has to continue paying you, even though you are away from the mine and being non-productive. Mining companies look very carefully at the safety training of people who apply for jobs with them.

That’s why we’ve designed our mining safety induction course to be the best in Australia and give the best results. Helping all our students stand out to the mining companies and giving you the best shot at landing a job.

There are many important distinctions that set our course apart so that you’ll be an attractive candidate to the mining company recruitment officers.

Here’s how our training will make you stand out to mining companies:

    • Our course is designed by employers and follows the Mines Inspectorate directive. This means what you will learn on our course are the skills and knowledge the mining companies want and NEED you to have.
    • Unlike many other training courses, we also cover metalliferous. This means you can access more mine sites.
    • Our training is designed to exceed the standards required. We do this to put YOU in the best position to start your career.
    • Our trainers have real experience which means not only are they excellent trainers, they can also help you understand life in the mines.
    • Highly practical classes meaning you will be able to apply your knowledge and show your employers real skills.

More enjoyable and engaging training

Not only have we carefully designed our courses to give you the best skills and qualifications. We’ve also worked hard to create courses that are engaging and enjoyable to take.

Why sit through boring training when you can enjoy highly interactive sessions taken by experienced and highly skilled trainers?

We know that with better instruction, you’ll retain more knowledge. With more knowledge you’ll have more confidence to sell yourself better to employers.

This will give you greater appeal to others who are competing with you to claim those high paying positions.

The course is held over 2 days (with a requirement for you to complete a pre-course assessment on safety and WHS) to ensure that you’re going to come out of it with a high level of knowledge by covering additional subject material.

Pre-Course Assessment

The pre-course assessment is to be completed in your own time before you attend the course. This ensures that you’re going to finish the course with a high level of mining knowledge by covering additional subject material.

Workplace Assessment

After you have completed the course, you will be given a statement of completion. As per the requirement set out by the Mines Inspectorate, you are required to complete a number of workplace activities on a mine site before a final statement of completion with 6 units can be issued.

For students who are not actively employed in the industry at the time the training course was completed, you will have to engage in employment to complete the workplace activities before you can officially complete and finish the course.
