Shotfirer and Related training

In the past, the best way into a mining job was through the Blast crew. Legislation has changed in most states, forced partly by safety but also by security. Now to get a position on a blast crew a person generally has to have some form of training in legislative responsibilities and safety in Handling, Transport and Storage of Explosives.

Training is conducted at regular intervals in Brisbane, Townsville and Central Queensland.
