The Wall of Fame

Our Wall of Fame page contains messages from people that have used their recently acquired mining knowledge. Gained through either Workready or the Introduction to Underground Mining DIY packages, to get themselves a start in the Hardrock Mining industry.
It just shows that if you know what is expected of you on site, then you have something to offer the employers.

When you get your start, you can send a text, Facebook message or short video message, letting the team here at Underground Training know of your success and we will add you to the Wall of Fame.
