The course comprises three units of competency which have specified by the Coal and Metalliferous Mining Safety and Health Advisory Boards for any person authorised to supervise workers on a mine. This course is required by the legislation to be refreshed at least every 5 years – OHSA offers an online/distance learning option for this refresher option which requires a brief theory assessment and portfolio of workplace evidence and activities to be submitted. Also see our website page about the Supervisor Refresher Program.

We also offer a 5 day worker’s package which includes Standard 11, Work at Heights, Confined Spaces and Senior First Aid over 5 consecutive days from Monday to Friday or Wednesday to Sunday weekly. Supervisors can choose to do the 5 day supervisor’s package which includes the Standard 11, Mining Supervisor S123 and G2 over 5 consecutive days Monday to Friday or Wednesday to Sunday.
