    Hi can you tell me how the induction course costs? What license do you have to do if I already have a NZ Heavy Truck and trailer license to optain a dump truck license? Thank you.

    • iMINCO September 1, 2011

      Hi Kat,
      A Heavy Vehicle and trailer licence is different to the Dump Truck Licence, so if this is something you are interested in you might want to look at the Dump Truck Course. This information is available under the Mining Training Tab. Thanks Kat.

    Hi Pete Thinking of doing the mining course could you send me a pdf handbook for the standard 11 induction? And does it have metalliferous mining
    thanks billy

    • Pete - iMINCO August 25, 2011

      Hi Billy

      Most of the information is on the RRTO induction page. You can call the course manger if you need any further clarification. The metaliferous induction is separate to the standard 11 mining induction
