We're for better products.

Licenced RTO members of the Resources Training Council deliver several activity based programs to improve workforce competency and safety.

Our licenced products.

The programs delivered by our licenced members are designed to introduce new mining contractors and employees to foundation principles of risk and working safely. They cater for existing, experienced workers through recognised prior learning and refresher programs.

The face to face programs focus on a strong foundation of underpinning knowledge and application of basic principles. A key aim of the program is to influence participant’s behaviour around safety. Our ‘hands on’ approach focuses on What’s In It For Me (WIIFM). Group challenges and discussions coupled with a number of reflective activities and takeaways are used to increase the opportunities for behavioural change.

After successfully completing this program, participants will complete relevant site induction programs on the sites they will be working on followed by an on-site verification process to ensure the key components of the units of competency are applied at a site level.
