Dump Truck Training Courses
Training courses are mandatory if you are you looking to get into the mines an earn a big salary as a dump truck driver?
These courses teach you how to safely drive with a heavy emphasis placed on Occupational Health and Safety training, pre-start truck inspections, radio communications, log book keeping and documentation, check-lists and reports.
Dump trucks are massive, can weigh up to 40 tons (almost 600,000kg) and costing up to $7 million. Mining companies would of course prefer to employ people who have attained a national accredited ticket and can demonstrate high levels of driving competency. You need to show employers you can drive a dump truck safely.
By completing a course, you will show your future employer that you’ve invested your time and money in nationally recognised training (RIIMPO311A Conduct Haul Truck Operations) and you have met the Occupational Health and Safety requirements – which is an important achievement you can add to your resume.
Dump Truck Training Courses Location
Dump truck training courses are held at Dinmore, just west of Brisbane, QLD and there’s plenty of affordable accommodation close-by if you are traveling long distances. Once you`ve booked your spot, you’ll be contacted by the training organisation to confirm your booking and help you select a course date that suits your availability.
The course trainers have real-world experience in the mining and resource industry – meaning they are very knowledgeable trainers who will prepare you for what to expect when driving a dump truck in all types of challenging situations, day or night, in wet and dry conditions. Once you’ve completed the training, you’ll be ready to demonstrate what you have learned and prove to your future employer you know how to safely operate a dump truck.

Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII)
Commonly refered to as Black Coal Competency (BCC), the RII competency is one that can be attained by an operator who has previously worked in the industry and has completed a number of operating hours on various types of machinery.
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.
You can transfer your nationally recognised civil Excavator, Front End Loader or Dozer tickets only to RII Black Coal Competencies.
