Course Details

Certification

This GI Course provides both experienced and inexperienced workers with a pathway from which they can enter the mining industry in Australia. GI is the new Generic Induction (GI) course for anyone working in Queensland in the coal mining industry. The GI Programme provides training and assessment for the Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII) Units of Competency which are specified in Recognised Standard 11, Training in Coal Mines (Qld Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999). The units of competency within this course can be used towards completion of more advanced courses such as RII20213 Certificate II in Surface Extraction Operations or RII30713 Certificate III in Mine Emergency Response and Rescue if required.

The GI program is the most universally accepted induction program in Australian mining. However, individuals and contractors should confirm induction requirements with the site they will be working on before attending an induction to ensure the process aligns with site processes and is recognised by site.

The GI program that we offer is the industry-recognised Energy Skills Queensland (ESQ) GI Safety Induction. Each participant that is deemed competent will receive a Statement of Attainment from Pinnacle Safety and Training (RTO 40496) and the ESQ GI SkillPASS Card.

It was a very full-on two days doing the Generic Induction (mining S11) course. The instructor, Sam knew her topics very well and provided additional information which was very informative. The practical elements were excellent to learn from too.
