Safety is a huge issue in the mines!
Make sure you’re well prepared to cope with emergency first-aid situations.
Not just underground or at mining work sites but in the camps and mining areas, safety and first aid skills are highly valued by mining employers and are often essential before stepping foot on a mining camp or mine site.
If an accident happened whilst you are operating mining equipment would you know what to do in those vital first few minutes?
One thing people say about accidents is that they happen quickly.
When they do, will you be ready to help your family, friends and workmates?
Simple things can help save lives, however, you need to have those skills before the incident, in order to help when you`re needed.
By completing a first aid training course you are gaining the skills that mining companies value and that you’ll need if you find yourself in that moment of crisis.

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.
