MinEx works to support the provision of good quality training. It has established an Extractive Industry Training Advisory Group to ensure that training for mining, tunnelling and quarry operators fit the needs of the industry.
Any mine or quarry has to be operated by someone with a Certificate of Competence - a CoC. There are A and B-grade CoCs. There are requirements to update CoCs and to take part in Continuing Professional Development, CPD. See our Certificates of Competency page for more information.
MinEx works with organisations including MITO, a division of Te Pūkenga, and Hanga-aro-rau (Workforce Development Council) who support vocational education for our sector.
These organisations can arrange training for everything from entry level positions through to operations, supervision and management.
You can find out more about mining and quarry qualifications through MITO.
