EAA53 Geological Assistant Skill Set Skill set On campus
East Perth

With this Geological Assistant skill set you'll gain the skills and knowledge needed to seek employment in entry level geological assistant roles in either exploration, pit or underground environments as well as other entry level mining roles.

The units covered will be delivered in two clusters or groups:

Geological Field Assistance (4.5 hours per week)

  • RIIEGS303D Provide geological field assistance

Field and Mining Techniques (12 hours per week)

  • CPPSIS3016A Provide field support
  • RIISTD202D Collect routine site samples
  • RIIEGS202D Conduct fieldwork
  • RIIEGS301D Operate and maintain instruments and field equipment
