This is a mandatory course for underground coal miners in Qld. This online UNDERGROUND Standard 11 (S11) Mining Induction (correctly known as the Generic OHS Induction from Appendix 3 in the Qld Department of Natural Resources and Mines ‘Recognised Standard 11 – Training in Coal Mines ) is a required course for new starters to work on a mine in Queensland.
OHSA are licensed by the Resources Training Council (RTC) to deliver this industry course. OHSA are one of the largest and most regular providers of this course. This course exceeds the requirements of most other interstate mining induction requirements (however you should always check first with the mine about any specific requirements they may have).
This course covers both coal and metalliferous mines. The Standard 11 Mine Safety Induction (Underground) course is typically delivered face-to-face over 1 Days – however, due to the current issues with COVID 19 Coronavirus, the Resources Training Council have agreed to temporarily allow this course to be delivered online with a 2.5 hr practical workshop. However, if due to social distancing and ‘lock-down’, attendance to small group practical workshops is not possible, the student may then complete a scheduled zoom, webcam or face time simulated demonstration with the trainer / assessor.
There are THREE (3) pathways (options) for you to receive your Standard 11 Underground Induction.
Option 1: Do Course ONLINE and PHYSICALLY come to small group practicals.
Receive RTC Card and Statement of Completion (this is the usual process, except sessions are temporarily delivered and assessed online and participant attends F2F small group 2.5hr practical workshops).
Option 2: Do Course ONLINE and complete practical via WEB BASED simulation conferencing with trainer / assessor one on one.
Receive RTC Card and Statement of Completion (this is the temporary process, with sessions and theory delivered / completed online and the practical tasks demonstrated at the small group 2.5hr workshops or discussed via webcam video conferencing if student is unable to attend the practical workshops).
Option 3: Do Course ONLINE and at a LATER date PHYSICALLY attend the PRACTICALS or complete the WEB BASED simulation conferencing with trainer / assessor one on one.
Receive RTC Card and Statement of Completion with COVID19 Notice (this is the temporary process, with sessions and theory delivered / completed online and the practical tasks that have not yet been demonstrated listed on your Statement of Completion with a COVID19 Notice. Once the practicals have been completed the Statement will be updated and reissued without the COVID19 Notice).
