About Underground Training
Underground Training was was founded to address the high turnover of inexperienced staff in the Hardrock Underground Mining Industry. The aim is to give a new starter a level of knowledge and understanding of how both the mine and industry work. This gives the new starter the confidence to answer mining questions in an interview and land the job. If you know how the employers mine works then you have something to offer them.
Mining is a diverse and economically important industry internationally and particularly here at home in Australia. It is an industry that offers career opportunities like no other and a lifestyle to suit. None more so than in the Hardrock underground side of the industry where the top crew job pays $1500 to $2500 a day (jumbo operator).
What do we mean by Hardrock? We are talking about gold, lithium, nickel, uranium, copper and rare earths to name just a few. Just about everything except coal. Australia has just started a new boom in Gold with record prices in Australian dollars above $2800 an ounce. This is where most of the new starter jobs are.
You can use Underground Training online packages to get your mining knowledge up to speed and get the start you are chasing. The video outlines how one of our students got a job using our DIY package.
