If your current induction card has expired or been lost - call to discuss.

If you have limited or overseas documents because you have been working overseas - call to discuss.

If you have been working in the resources sector or if you have an existing induction with current experience and your five year refresher is due, don't sit in a classroom for one or more days, complete our Distance Mode refresher via RPL.

NOTE: Some sites in Queensland have specific requirements for the customisation of their generic induction training (for example BMA), anyone who is considering enrolling in the Standard 11 Induction is advised to first confirm the specific requirements of their site.


The process typically takes two to three hours total (can be longer or shorter sometimes).

NOTE: The Refresher via RPL process for Recognised Standard 11 can be completed by distance mode at any time (by negotiation). After hours or weekend times attract a $100 out of hours charge. The process is completed by submission of evidence, a written challenge test and an interview with an assessor in order to be issued with a statement of attainment and RTC ID Card.


People who hold any type of expired Induction Card and/or who require recognition of their current, existing skills, knowledge and experience should apply for RPL.

The RTC Induction has a 5 year refresher period as recommended under S84 of the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulations.

*The RTC Standard 11 Induction – Surface is a program owned and managed by the Resources Training Council Inc (RTC). NOST is a proud member of the association and is licensed by RTC to deliver the program.


Submitted evidence will be evaluated prior to any payment being required.  COVID-19 Distance mode has replaced the challenge test and interview with email/telephone/facetime contact.

  1. Submission of evidence (may include: Certificates for various mining competencies, first aid, fire training, trade qualifications, log books, JSAs, site authorisations, tickets to operate equipment, etc)
