Queensland government promises $100,000 to help get more indigenous people into mining jobs
More indigenous mining jobs Queensland needed
WOW – what a big donation and commitment from the Queensland government! If only the government of Queensland spent less on their re-election campaign (Millions) and channeled some of that cash into some real projects that help and assist others to create a better life for themselves and their communities.
QLD government renews jobs partnership with the Queensland Resources Council
In a bold move and possibly yet possibly another political stunt, the QLD government has renewed a jobs partnership with the Queensland Resources Council (QRC) and promised to donate $100,000 to the cause.
Treasurer Curtis Pitt said a new memorandum of understanding would be finalised before the end of June, focussing on new ways to help a greater number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people find work in the resources sector.
The partnership between the Queensland government and the Queensland Resource Council has been in place since 2007, so let’s hope more indigenous mining jobs Queensland are created.
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.
