Mine Inductions - RISA MI Surface (Previously Standard 11)

Who is this course designed for?

The course has been developed for people who want to work in the mining industry and need to complete an induction (also known as a mining ticket).

Axial’s course meets mining induction requirements set by the Queensland Mining Safety Inspectorate.

With your training card in hand you’ll be able to work on different mine sites. On entering a new mine site you will also be required to complete a site specific induction.

Before enrolling in the RISA MI Surface induction you should confirm the requirements with the site you will be working on to ensure the induction is recognised by the site.
