Effective occupational training in the mining industry has three critical components:
- In-class foundational training
- Hands-on, on the job training
- 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.
Common Competency Training
MiHR’s Common Competency training focuses on the foundational tasks that are common across MiHR’s suite of seven (7) National Occupational Standards, which include Underground Miner, Surface Miner, Mineral Processing Operator, Diamond Driller, Hoist Operator, Front Line Supervisor and Industry Trainer. It trains learners in the areas of competency (safety, environment etc.) required for an entry level position in the Canadian mining industry.
Diamond Driller Training
MiHR’s Diamond Driller training is aligned with both MiHR’s Diamond Driller National Occupational Training Standard and the Ontario Diamond Driller Common Core. It focuses on the skills and tasks industry has deemed required for Diamond Drillers to know to be proficient in their occupation.
Industry Trainer Training
MiHR’s Industry Trainer training is designed to support the development of new Industry Trainers and focuses on training and assessment. It teaches the critical skills needed to train new employees, upskill the existing workforce and reinforce safety protocols so workers can enjoy an accident-free work environment.
