Standard 11 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 a good wage even if you’re just starting out!

However, such big pay packets mean 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 others who want the same job.

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.

Mining companies look for people who have the best skills, attitude, relevant safety 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?

However, 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.

Here’s how Standard 11 training will make you stand out;

          • This course follows the Mines Inspectorate directive. This means what you will learn are the skills and knowledge the mining companies want and NEED you to have.
          • Unlike many other training courses, this training also cover metalliferous. This means you can access more mine sites like gold, silver and even work in quarrying.
          • This training is designed to exceed the standards required.
