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 these mining induction courses which must also be completed to enter onto their site.
Some States do not have any specific generic 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.
