Advanced Diploma of Surface Coal Mining Management


The Certificate Provides Competency-Based Training and Assessment

Recognised Standard 22 (RS22)  requires SSEs  to develop a Management Structure for the development and implementation of the Safety and Health Management System (SHMS) for their mine; and the obligation to determine the competency requirements of positions delegated responsibility under the SHMS and to document those competencies in their Management Structure to ensure operations are at an acceptable level of risk. The MINRES Advanced Diploma of Surface Coal Mining Management (RII60720) has been designed using a SMART Training Plan specifically to assist Site Senior Executives in coal mines to fulfil their Recognised Standard 22 (RS22) requirements.
