Occupational Training

Teaches the foundational and technical skills needed to be safe and effective in the mining industry in various occupations.

Effective occupational training in the mining industry has three critical components:

  1. In-class foundational training
  2. Hands-on, on the job training
  3. Work experience/placement to practice learnings

MiHR’s training program packages include all the required training materials needed for successful in-class foundation training delivery, including a trainer’s guide, participant workbooks, PowerPoints, handouts and resources.

MiHR has received funding to be able to support employers, educational institutions and training organizations with up to a $20,000 subsidy ($30,000 for equity deserving groups) to deliver MiHR’s occupational training, and provide employers $1,000 to support the delivery of upskilling opportunities to the existing workforce through the delivery of MiHR’s Industry Trainer and Frontline Supervisor occupational training.
