Working in the mining and resource sector often requires visiting and working in remote areas where access is only possible by going off-road. Completing a 4WD training course can save your life, as well as the lives of others. The aim of 4WD training is to improve your skills and knowledge to safely operate a four-wheel-drive vehicle in a variety of hazardous situations and conditions.
Mining and resource companies take the safety of their personnel very seriously and it’s high on their agenda to minimise collisions, lower vehicle running costs and provide a safe working environment at all times. Having completed your 4WD training and having it featured on your resume could make a big difference to your mining and resource sector job application or career.

RII competency is granted to prove correct and safe operation of mine site machinery. It is a very useful qualification to have, as it confirms the operator has the required experience and expertise.
