With the spate of rock related incidents, the creation of this course was requested by mines for attendance by machine operators, drillers, miners and shift overseers.

The course is presented on site by Caddis as MQA and QCTO accredited training provider.

Qualified, experienced production Geologists and Rock Engineers present this course to Machine Operators, Miners and Shift Overseers.
Two days is spent on theory with a pre-and post-test. The third day is spent in the section doing practical training and workplace assessment.

Course content.

The Strata Control for Production course specialize on the practical identification of geological structures, understanding their 3D orientation and mapping thereof.
