Dump Truck Training at Industry Pathways

Experienced Trainers

The trainers are mine-experienced, they know the common problems that haul truck drivers face and they structure the course around these issues.


Course Flexibility

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 (depending on student numbers).


5 day course: $3790
This includes the S11 coal mining induction qualification, light vehicle (4WD) certification and haul truck ticket.

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 RIIMPO311A Conduct 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.
