The “Recognised Standard 11 – Training in Coal Mines” was issued by the Queensland Department of Resources and sets out the national units of competency that an individual must hold to work on a coal mine in Queensland.

For those with at least 3 months resources industry experience in the last 5 years, see our 1-day experienced entry program - click here.

Given the course is delivered via Zoom and assessments are completed via our online Learner Portal (with assessments marked in real-time by the trainer), this online course is suitable for students who have at least a basic level of computer literacy. Students will need to complete a brief ‘virtual pre-course validation’ module online to ensure their suitability (which includes the use of Zoom and the ability to navigate a web browser and multiple tabs).

Our Standard 11 online training will be conducted online & virtually via real-time video led training. The course is delivered via Zoom, with assessments and activities completed via our online Learner Portal (meaning assessments are marked in real-time by the trainer and the student is supported throughout the course).

The Standard 11 induction program is recognised and accepted across most coal mines and locations in Queensland. Once you successfully complete the program, you will receive a statement of attainment, which is a portable qualification valid throughout the state's coal mining industry.

The main exception is BMA mine sites as they often have their own induction process. If you are heading to a BMA mine site, we recommend you contact the BMA mine site regarding their entry requirements prior to enrolling in this course.

WorkSafe Connect’s Virtual Training is live, real-time trainer-led delivered in an interactive online environment.

Our virtual training is the same great learning experience that our face-to-face training is known for, just delivered differently. By way of overview of what our virtual training involves:

  • They are real-time video-led sessions where our trainer presents to the group and guides the students through the activities and assessments.
  • It is delivered via the Zoom or Microsoft Teams platform, which allows students to interact with the other students as well as the trainer (including break out rooms for group discussions).
  • Students complete their assessments and activities via our online web-based Learner Portal. The trainer marks the assessments throughout the session and assists students who need to reattempt questions that were incorrect.
  • In order to complete the virtual session, students need to have access to a computer or laptop (not a tablet), webcam, headphones and reliable internet.
  • Students complete the course requirements during the session and are issued their certificate soon after if they successfully completed their assessments.

Many participants have commented that they actually prefer this delivery method to traditional face-to-face as we limit our class sizes to 8 participants maximum and there are numerous ways in which to interact within the session.

To participate, participants are required to be connected to the internet via desktop computer or a laptop device with a camera, microphone and headphones. Please see the Course Delivery section above for full details of what you require.

If you would like to discuss delivery options in more detail, then please get in contact with us and we would be more than happy to discuss your requirements and options with you.
