What is the Generic Induction Coal Surface Refresher?

The Generic Induction Coal Surface Refresher (GI Refresher) programme has been developed with Energy Skills Queensland as part of our commitment to the ongoing quality of training and safety in the coal mining sector.

The GI Refresher, provides industry workers with essential risk assessment and safety skills required to operate safely on mine sites. It ensures knowledge and skills of coal workers are updated to enable them to identify hazards and manage risk in the workplace.

Specifically designed for the resources industry, the GI Refresher programme aligns with Queensland specific regulatory requirements for anyone continuing work in the Queensland coal mining industry.


Why do I need to do the GI Refresher/Standard 11 Induction?

You will need to do the GI Refresher if you want to remain ‘current’ in the Queensland Coal Mining Industry.

The Coal Mine Safety and Health Regulations 2001 states that each ‘coal mine worker holding a certificate of competency, is given refresher training under the mine training scheme at least once in every five years’.

To be eligible for the Standard 11 Refresher, participants must:

  • Hold the six units of competency relevant to the Standard 11 qualification
  • Had 12 TWELVE months experience in the ‘Industry’ within the last 2 years
  • Worked in the ‘Industry’ within the last 12 months.
  • If you have any questions regarding what course is the right one for you then please call us and we will be happy to work with you on determining the right course based on your experience.


    Why should I do this course with WorkSafe Connect?

    WorkSafe Connect is one of Queensland’s leading providers of the Standard 11 Generic Induction Coal Surface Program.

    Our custom program focusses on safety leadership, problem solving and decision-making skills in situations of hazard identification and risk management and is facilitated by experienced, award winning and engaging trainers.

    Regardless of your background and experience we will work with you to identify the best pathway to completing this course and offer this program weekly in Brisbane and Townsville as well as onsite.


    Will I receive a new GI Card?

    The short answer is YES

    A new GI Card (valid for another 5 (FIVE) years) will be issued post the course by Energy Skills Queensland. The GI card will also store a record of your GI training on SkillPASS.


    Will I receive a new Statement of Attainment (SoA)?

    The short answer is YES.

    Although some RTOs are only issuing statements of completion, WorkSafe Connect will issue a new Statement of Attainment for the six units of competency as the requirements of Recognised Standard 11 Surface- Training in Coal Mines.

    This will be valid for a further 5 (FIVE) years until their next refresher period.


    I do not know which site I will be on, how can I be sure your induction is suitable for my work site?

    If you are heading to a specific mine site then we do recommend to all participants to contact the mine site in advance regarding what entry requirements they require.

    While the Generic Induction has been a recognised industry standard for almost 20 years and aligns with Queensland-specific regulatory requirements for anyone working in, or wishing to work in, the Queensland coal mining industry, we do note that there are a limited number of mine sites (including those run by BMA) that do have a standalone Generic Induction Courses.

    If you have any questions regarding what course is the right one for you then please call us and we will be happy to work with you to make sure the course is suitable for your requirements.


    What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)?

    If you're studying nationally recognised training in Australia from 1 January 2015, you are required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

    Your USI links to an online account that contains all your training records and results that you have completed from 1 January 2015 onwards and without this number we cannot issue you your statement of attainment.

    If you do not already have a USI please click on the following link to create one.


    It is a straight forward process to complete this online and you will require a Driver's Licence, Medicare Card, Australian Passport or Birth Certificate to proceed.
