Standard 11 Mining Induction

Coal Competency compliant

The ASTRA Standard 11 Mining Induction program not only provides our attendees with the necessary accredited competencies, but also gives a valuable insight into the life of a miner through an innovative and engaging three-day workshop. The Std 11 mining induction course is the revised version of what was previously known as the GI ‘Generic Induction’. Now commonly referred to as the S11 or Standard 11, it is required for anyone working within the surface coal mine industry and metalliferous mine operations in QLD.

The Standard 11 recognised Mining Induction is designed to train participants in the required coal mining competencies recognised by the Coal Mining Safety and Health Advisory Committee, along with skills and knowledge from industry experienced trainers.

Learning Methods

ASTRA uses various assessment methods and techniques, including skill and knowledge assessments as an essential step to ensure you progress through your course. To begin with the mining induction training helps to establish essential skills and training where you are later assessed in a number of ways while you are studying and training with ASTRA, including observation, written assessment, questioning, portfolios, work samples, third-party feedback, and in some cases through recognition of prior learning.

Before commencing our mining induction course, ASTRA recommends you consult your doctor to determine any limitations with conducting practical demonstrations if applicable. There may be multiple tasks that require manual handling of materials and equipment, usage of a fire extinguisher and general exposure to accessing and working on structures at height. If you are unsure about your capabilities, please contact the ASTRA team for further assistance and to determine the support services in place to assist your training experience.
