The program 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).

I have completed my course and would just like to say thank you so very much for all your assistance during my training. Honestly Pinnacle Safety and Training has been the absolute best RTO I have used and will definitely be doing further training with you.
