RIIMPO301D – Conduct Hydraulic Excavator Operations
This course covers the functions required to prepare and operate an excavator.
Although this is a mining focus, the skills obtained in the proficient use of this machine allow the operator to readily adjust to most other types of earthmoving equipment.
We suggest this type of machine if you are looking to learn a skill that may provide easier and extended periods of employment within the industry as a whole.
Duration: 3-5 days (competency based)
Location: Brisbane, Queensland
Maximum per course: 6
Times: 7.00 am – 5.00 pm

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.
