Changes to assessments for non-coal certificates of competence

The Mining and Petroleum Competence Board at its November 2017 meeting requested a change to the process for achieving a certificate of competence in the non-coal industry.

From 2018, any applicant for a certificate of competence to be either a quarry manager of mines other than underground mines or coal mines, or, a mining engineering manager of underground mines other than coal mines, is to be assessed and pass a written examination before being invited to be assessed and pass an oral assessment.

This change brings the non-coal sector in line with the coal sector process. Oral exam dates have been added in September.
