This 2-day entry level course provides participants with the skills and knowledge required to work on a surface coal mine site in Qld. The course takes participants through the 6 key competencies that will give valuable knowledge regarding common safety practices of coal mines.


The program is made up of the following 6 nationally accredited units of competency (which are recognised by the QLD Department of Mines as the core S11 modules):

  • RIICOM201D Communicate in the workplace
  • RIIGOV201D Comply with site work processes/procedures

In addition to safety, our course will run the participants through a brief history of coal mining as well as the future of coal mining. The Standard 11 (S11) Training Course run in Brisbane, Townsville, or Onsite will give you all the basic information required to keep you safe on coal Mines and allow participants to gain access to Coal Mines in Queensland.

In order to complete the course, participants must successfully complete the assessments during the course as well as provide a completed skills and experience form (with supporting verifiable evidence of previous experience in mining or related industries). If a participant is not able to produce this verifiable evidence, the participant will be issued a Statement of Completion at the end of the course and given a Standard 11 Logbook to complete. The participant has 12 months to complete this Logbook and return to WorkSafe Connect (note, there is no additional cost if returned within this time frame). 

Upon successful completion of the course requirements (including evidence of previous experience or completion of a Logbook), the participant will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment in both electronic and hard copy form as well as a credit card sized ‘Competency ID Card’.

WorkSafe Connect offers both the full course which requires 2 days of training as well as a refresher course which takes 1 day of training. Both the Standard 11 full course and Standard 11 refresher course are run often, so your training could take place this week.

Faqs Standard 11 Generic Coal Induction (GI) - Surface

How do I get a Standard 11?

In order to achieve your Standard 11 accreditation, you must complete a 2-day face to face training course. The course takes participants through the 6 key competencies that will give valuable knowledge regarding common safety practices on coal mines.

In order to complete the course, participants must successfully complete the assessments during the course as well as provide a completed skills and experience form (with supporting verifiable evidence of previous experience in mining or related industries).

If a participant is not able to produce this verifiable evidence, the participant will be issued a Statement of Completion at the end of the course and given a Standard 11 Logbook to complete. The participant has 12 months to complete this Logbook and return to WorkSafe Connect (note, there is no additional cost if returned within this time frame).

The Logbook process set out above is standard practice across the coal mining industry with sites familiar with this pathway for those participants who are new to the mining industry.

How long does a Standard 11 last?

5 years.

As set out in the Recognised Standard – Training in Coal Mines issued by the Queensland Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy, refresher training under the mine training scheme must occur at least once in every five (5) years.

While the national units of competency associated with the Standard 11 (S11) do not expire, similar to other competencies like CPR, your competencies must be refreshed in order to continue to legally work on a Queensland coal mine.

If you do require a refresher of your Standard 11, WorkSafe Connect offers a 1 day Standard 11 (S11) Refresher training course and full details regarding this refresher can be found by clicking on the following link:

https://www.worksafeconnect.com/courses/refresher-standard-11-generic-coal-induction-gi

What is a current Standard 11?

The Standard 11 (S11) is the recognised training standard associated with the Queensland Coal Mining industry.The specific legislation relating to this Standard is the Coal Mining Safety & Health Act 1999 and the Coal Mine Safety and Health Regulations 2001.

Currency of your Standard 11 relates to when you completed either your initial training course or a refresher – ie.If you completed your Standard 11 training 3 years ago then your Standard 11 remains current.

As set out in the Recognised Standard, each ‘coal mine worker must hold the Standard 11 qualification and this qualification must then be refreshed under the mine training scheme at least once in every five years’.

If you do require a refresher of your Standard 11, WorkSafe Connect offers a 1 day Standard 11 (S11) Refresher training course and full details regarding this refresher can be found by clicking on the following link:
