The course's have been developed over many years and cater to those people who have limited experience through to those with many years of blasting experience. Course content changes regularly ensuring that the latest technology and learning is discussed.

 

Shotfiring and Support Shotfiring Courses

Orica is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO ID: 7113) with qualifications in surface extraction and underground metalliferous mining on our scope of registration. We are registered to deliver nationally recognised training outcomes in all Australian States and Territories. Included under the qualifications on our scope are specific units of competency that form skill sets in surface and underground shotfiring.
 
 The completion of Orica's Support Shotfirer course leads to the award of a statement of attainment for RIIBLA201D Support Shotfiring Operations, which forms a pathway towards shotfiring. 
 
The completion of Orica's surface and underground shotfiring courses leads to the award of a statement of attainment which contains the necessary competencies to apply for a blasting license in all States and Territories.
 
Applicants should confirm specific local legislation requirements at the time of application.
 
Important Note: All other blasting courses listed on this page are NOT nationally accredited training outcomes. They are enterprise specific.
