There is currently no short course or seminar that supplies enough information to allow the average person with no mining experience navigate the difficulties of getting their first mining job.
The seminar contains a history of the industry, explaining where the boom time jobs have been in the past and where these jobs are now and into the future. Covering how best to present a mining friendly resume.
The work is out there, I helped a young guy here in Perth last week. After following the courses I recommended, he got a start as an underground truck driver. You can make this work for you, follow the link to find out more.
There are 4 online courses that a Western Australian company has produced. These courses have been designed to make a student ready for what they were going to have to go through in the first 6 months of their mining career. I recommend you do these courses in order to get your mining knowledge up to speed.
When you go to site part of the training is on the surface in the class room. The rest is conducted on the job, normally by a senior crew member. The courses that I recommend contain both the surface and on the job training, they use the WA mining Act as the standard in explaining all tasks/jobs/skills.
If you can tell an employer how you are going to water down a heading or scale a wall in an interview, then employers hire. Follow the link and find out more about how to, do it yourself
I offer a full service that includes a resume review to make your resume mining friendly. As well as 2 half hour session with me to go over your mining knowledge and interview skills. If you are in Perth I am more than happy to meet in the Northern Suburbs to go over your situation. This includes all the Underground Training courses and the Australian mining seminar.
If I am happy that you have learned what is in the courses and now have a good mining knowledge I am more than happy for you to put me on your resume saying that I have reviewed your mining knowledge and I am happy with your standards, follow the link to find out more..
