The NSW Resources Regulator has introduced a section to its online portal for mining workers to apply for examinations, certificates of competence and practising certificates.
A step-by-step guide on applications is available on the Regulator’s website.
The online application process has become particularly pertinent, as remote learning grows in popularity and necessity, following the pandemic.
The update to the Regulator website comes as the organisation wraps up a string of workshops which sought to inform and re-educate quarry managers who hold practising certificates.
The workshops provided an update on maintenance of competence requirements and a self-auditing checklist for logbooks.
The Regulator has suggested a range of steps applicants can take in preparing to apply for examinations or certificates.
These include revising the linked guide above, subscribing to the Mine Safety newsletter, and attending a briefing session.
The IQA has thrown its support behind the workshops and guides offered by the Regulator, and the continued development of the workforce.
“As the professional body for quarry operators and suppliers, the IQA is here to support your continuing professional development requirements,” an IQA announcement stated. For further information about training, visit the IQA website.
