Mining companies look carefully at the safety training of all applicants before they employ you, that’s why it’s important for you to complete this course before you start applying for mining jobs.

1. What is Coal Induction?
Mining companies will hire safety conscious people – it’s as simple as that!
The Coal Induction training is a safety induction program for the mining industry designed to provide new and existing mine workers with important risk assessment and safety knowledge before they undertake further induction training on-site.
The Coal Induction course, referred to as ‘mining induction’ is a nationally recognised qualification.
2. Coal Induction course locations
Courses are run in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Cairns, Hervey Bay, Townsville, Emerald, Adelaide and Canberra.
The Coal Induction course runs over 2 days
The training is very interactive and enjoyable (it’s not like being at school).
3. What Happens Next?
Once you’ve done the course, you are required to complete a number of workplace activities on a mine site as part of achieving competency before a statement of attainment can be issued.
If you’re not employed (in the mining industry) at the time you do the course, you’ll have to first get a mining job and complete the ‘workplace activities’ part of the course before you can officially complete and finish the course in its entirety.
We recommend you should always check first with the specific site, industry or State regulations you intend to work in, to determine their specific requirements. Like construction sites, mine site also have their own site specific requirements over and above the coal induction course, which must also be completed to enter onto their site. Some States do not have any specific mine induction requirements and are thereby determined on a mine by mine basis, however this induction usually covers many of the subjects/topics required by many of those sites. BMA`s Queensland 6 coal mines have their own process for mining and site specific inductions. Should you be intending to go straight to one of BMA`s Queensland Coal Mines you should contact them to enquire about their specific site requirements which may mean enrolling into their own induction program or a mixture of both.
