Stop missing out on mining jobs because you lack the proper safety training qualifications.. consider doing your Standard 11

What is the Standard 11?

The Standard 11 is a safety induction program for the mining industry designed to provide mining and resource industry new starters and existing workers with important risk assessment and safety skills before undertaking additional on-site training.

Mining companies and recruiters will scan your resume for relevant qualifications.  In some cases your application may be ignored because you lack the basic training knowledge. You don’t want to miss out on a high-paying mining job because you lack the right knowledge do you?

Courses are held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Hervey Bay.

The Standard 11 is held over 2 days, with a pre-reading assessment to be completed before the course starts.

The classroom training is relaxed, interactive and enjoyable – with seasoned mine-experienced trainers ready to give you a helping hand.

Finalising your training?

Before you achieve full Standard 11 competency, you must complete a number of practical workplace activities on a mine site.

If you’re not working in mining when you do your Standard 11, you must complete the ‘workplace activities’ before you can officially complete and finish the course in its entirety – only then will a statement of attainment be issued.

Still not sure – test your mining safety knowledge

Despite the Standard 11 being a requirement in Queensland, it is not so elsewhere in Australia. Many people whinge about spending the money on this course when they feel their knowledge and experience is more than enough.

If you are one of those people, then see just how good your knowledge is by taking the 10 question quiz and get your name on the Mining Safety Leader Board.

We recommend you always check first with the specific mine site, industry or State regulations you intend to work in, to determine their specific requirements. Like construction sites, mine sites also have their own site specific requirements over and above the Standard 11 course which must also be completed to enter onto their site. Some States do not have any specific induction requirements and are thereby determined on a mine by mine basis, however this Standard 11 usually covers many of the subjects/topics required by many of those sites. BMA’s Queensland 6 coal mines have their own process for mining and site specific inductions. Should you be intending to go straight to one of BMA’s Queensland Coal Mines you should contact them to enquire about their specific site requirements which may mean enrolling into their own induction program or a mixture of both.
