Complete offsite training centres for mining are becoming popular with mining companies because they allow for a larger number of new starters to learn skills in a safe, practical environment. The offsite training centres closely replicate conditions when working on a real mine site and produce†candidates†who are experienced and have a commitment to safety from the start.
Mining companies choose offsite training as a cost effective way to develop their workforce. They have the advantage of being able to design multiple courses to suit their requirements. Offsite training can be set up to be scaleable to meet the requirements of the client.
Courses are set up as individual modules that can be added to the students program at anytime. For example a new starter may want to do the following which will† teach them about the mining industry before they complete their training.
- Introduction to Mining 1 day
- Dump Truck Course 5 day
- Mining Induction 3 day
