With the ongoing pandemic situation has affected various workplaces, including shortage of mine operators. To fulfill the space, organisations focus on upskilling their workforce.

Mining Skills Australia plays a significant role in minimising the education gap and provides real time information to the miners through the medium of our trainers, resources and eLearning technologies.

The knowledge gained through the years of experience and learning gives an edge to the trainers to impart a new skill to the operators.

There is always room for proficiency and learning opportunities, and this is supported by the encouragement for technologies like Animation and eLearning in addition to the trainer’s knowledge.

The advantage of having the involvement of trainers has a substantial impact on the learning process as they have a “fresh perspective” on operator training.

For instance, the trainers continuously assess the operator’s learning and provide feedbacks, aiding the knowledge transfer.
