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.
