The Standard 11 recognised Mining Induction training is designed to train participants in the required coal mining competencies recognised by the Coal Mining Safety and Health Advisory Committee.

ASTRA uses various assessment methods and techniques to ensure you progress through your course, with skill and knowledge assessments as the cornerstone of our programs. To begin with, the mining induction training helps to establish essential skills and training. As you progress through the course, these competencies are assessed in a number of ways. These include observation, written assessment, questioning, portfolios, work samples, third-party feedback, and in some cases through recognition of prior learning.

Before commencing our Standard 11 Mining Induction course, ASTRA recommends you consult a doctor to determine if you could have limitations with conducting practical demonstrations. 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.
