Preparing for the next wave of mining jobs in Queensland
With Indian group Adani, fighting their case for the development of the Carmichael mine in the Galilee Basin; as well as Townsville being pinned as the mining supply hub for road based transport, the opportunities for FIFO workers are becoming more apparent than ever.
With this in mind, it’s full steam ahead for those who wish to get their mining qualifications up to date. The Queensland government has a world-wide reputation as providing a safe and injury-free workplace. This is largely due to its mandatory training program know as the Standard 11 mining induction program.
