Generic Mining Induction


In Queensland, most employers prefer candidates that have already completed a generic induction. This training is available for people wanting to work in surface or underground mines, and the training can cover one or both of these environments. Subjects covered by the training include general safety, how to manage workplace hazards, emergency procedures, and more.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will be issued with a wallet-sized generic induction passport that you can show to any prospective employer. Once you have been issued with this passport, it will remain valid for two years. When the passport is nearing its expiry date, it is possible to undertake a quick refresher course to update it.

Inside of an underground mine.There are three training options. The first is for the underground generic passport, the second is for a surface generic passport and the third is for both the underground and surface generic passport.

The training you choose to undertake will depend entirely on your employment preferences. For some people, working underground is not an option, whereas others may feel that the income derived from working underground is worth the potential increased risks.

The generic passport courses cover general safety for working in the mining environment. This covers areas such as identifying and managing hazards, rules and regulations regarding traffic and equipment operation, and advanced training in first aid and firefighting.

The generic induction course is a two day course
