CoalStart First Intake of Trainees

The first intake of underground mining trainees completed the three week CoalStart advanced underground induction program during July 2012. On completion the group commenced the UGM Underground Mining Electrical Training Course. The Electrical Training course is an option that has been developed to complement the CoalStart program and bring non mining electricians ‘up to speed’ with the mining environment and regulatory framework.  Electricians are exposed to high voltage switching, fault finding and mining legislation while working on an actual mine site under an Electrical Engineering Management Plan.
