Love him or hate him, Tom Cruise is an inspiration!  Listen carefully to the first 60 seconds.

Lead Your Site with Confidence: Become a Site Senior Executive (SSE)

Take Control of Your Site

The role of the Site Senior Executive (SSE) is crucial in mining and quarrying operations. You’re in charge of safety, efficiency, and guiding your team. Your decisions impact health and safety, production, maintenance, and sales. Regardless of your operation’s size, your leadership is key.

Understand the Rules, Show Your Skill

What Students Have to Say...

I would like to thank you guys for the QM training.
I found everyone very friendly and professional. Admin had all the content ready to go, refreshments at the ready. The content was very relevant, useful and the trainers delivered it from experience, not just from a textbook. I found the skills and techniques were very practical and offered real solutions to real issues that we face in these times on a mine or quarry site. It was nice to complete training in an area in which I hadn't already covered. I would highly recommend MINRES to anyone seeking QM or any other training.

Just passing on my compliments for quite a well-run session over the past two days.
These webinars are not always easy to deliver with that format, particularly over the course of entire days. However, I certainly did not feel disadvantaged or that I would have missed out upon understanding in any way. I also noted the tech support from the MINRES team was quite responsive to the inevitable connection problem and kept us corralled quite well. I really enjoyed the training and will recommend it to others.

I just wanted to say a big thanks for all your hard work.
I got a lot out of the modules and it was great to get a chance to talk with others in the industry. The course was interactive and gave us the ability to work as we learnt. The trainer adapted to each persons knowledge levels which made us feel included and encouraged. The course content was easy to understand and gave me more confidence to do my job effectively. I could not have done this course without the help of the MINRES team.

The trainer showed how to navigate the acts and regulations sites easily and effectively.
The trainer was very knowledgeable and very helpful with some parts of the course that I found difficult. The training was clear and completed in a team environment which meant that it was interactive and engaging and was able to be adjusted for learners that weren't absorbing the information as fast as others. I was happy with how the course was run and now have a better understanding of the aspects of my job role. I will be able to convey WHS rules and regulations in a better way to my crew.

The online training went very well!.
So far I’ve done 3-4 online sessions with work and different providers and they have all been duds or stressful. This one was the standout success and shows how much hard work went into it. Big thanks to the MINRES Team :> Keep up the great work. I would thoroughly recommend these modules to my work colleagues... "
