Dump Truck Course

“There is still a high demand for equipment operators on mine, resource and civil sites and the opportunities for rewarding employment look extremely promising in 2014.”

Employers, when choosing operators focus on four main areas:

  • Safety
  • Realistic Training
  • Attitude
  • Experience

The better the hands on dump truck training the better chance you have of getting one of the highly sought-after positions.

This comprehensive dump truck (Haul Truck) course is better than a dump truck traineeship because it will teach you exactly what you need to know so you can be a valuable asset to a mining company or subcontractor.

The training course is run on a simulated mine site (with a current mining lease in place) where you will interact with excavators, water trucks, light vehicles and other machinery.
This is a realistic mining experience.

  • You will be breathalysed prior to training each day
  • You will need to conform to mine standards
  • You will learn how to correctly park vehicles
  • User mobile phones safely
  • You will wear the appropriate PPE
  • You will attend morning briefings and pre-start checks…plus a whole lot more.

Safety

This training course will also help you demonstrate your safety knowledge, whether it is in the interview room or on site you, will be able to show that you are a safety-motivated operator.

POS comms (Positive communication) is one of the cornerstones of their safety first approach and is embedded in all their training. Employers regard POS comms as an essential skill that makes a difference to your job prospects.

Realistic Training

This dump truck course exceeds the requirements of the unit of competency (RIIMPO311A – Conduct Haul Truck Operations).

Night-time driving

This course is one of the most comprehensive training schedules you’ll find. It addresses the real situations and challenges haul truck drivers face when working on a mine site.

When the sun goes down – it’s a whole new ball game

Being behind the wheel of a dump truck during daylight hours on a busy mine site has its advantages.

Drivers rely on the natural daylight conditions to spot hazards and take the necessary action to avoid near-misses and collisions.

However, when you think of it, most mining operations run 24 hour shifts, so it’s natural to assume there will be night time driving involved.

During night shift operations, the daily tasks are the same, with driving, reversing, hauling, loading, tipping and working amongst other vehicles is commonplace.

So when you think of it, training for night time driving is exactly what learner operators need.

“night time driving experience makes a significant difference”

Qualified operators who can demonstrate a wide range of driving experience and training will more than likely be favoured by mining companies, over those who have not had night time operations experience.

Applying for dump truck operator positions and showing the night time driving and training on a resume, could make a significant difference to the outcome.

These aspects of the training course will dramatically improve your chances of getting a well paid mining job.

Every dump truck trainee can expect:

  • Benefits of the 100ha off-site training centre (it prepares you for working in a mining environment)
  • A carefully designed, intensive course for maximum time behind the wheel.
  • Night and day driving – realistic mining conditions (a key thing employers look at).
  • Instruction on defensive driving
  • Skidpan control lessons
  • A 400m haul road straight (which is unusual in training environments).
  • Emergency braking (to show employers you can handle their trucks).
  • Includes black coal competency.
  • A nationally recognised unit of competency so you can work anywhere in Australia.
  • Post training job support to help you increase your opportunity of getting a haul truck job.
    This includes a members only website where you get access to the latest mining news and information you’d simply never have time to find on your own.

Attitude

We believe you need to be MIND ready and not just MINE ready to work in the industry. The course trainers focus on getting you ready for your mining career and they make you aware of the social, emotional, psychological and cultural aspects of working in a fast-paced mining environment.

Experience

Whilst there is a continuing push for companies to hire new starters, the more similar experience you can get, the more likely you will be of securing a long-term position. The Industry Pathways post training job support helps you find these job opportunities.

Some people prefer to look for a dump truck traineeship, although this type of training can help you get into the mining industry as a dump truck driver, new starters who have proven they have the right attitude and have invested heavily in themselves often stand a better chance of a position.

Industry Pathways are there to help you with your career pathway and journey. Your training will be engaging and enjoyable:
