This Diploma reflects the role of mine managers in an open cut coal or metalliferous mine or a quarry, who perform tasks involving a high level of autonomy and requiring the application of significant judgement in planning and determining the selection of equipment, roles and techniques for themselves and others. On completion of this course you'll be able to demonstrate a broad range of technical, managerial, coordination and planning skills and implement safety management plans.

The preferred pathway into this qualification is through experience in a formal supervision role in the open pit area.
