About Us

Mining is our source of everything we do, if it can't be grown, it must be mined.

Indigenous Pre-Employment Program

RML Training Services Pty Ltd was established to address the on-going shortage of trade qualified personnel. We are developing long-term, training initiatives for the development of the workforce and in particular, the Mining and Civil Contracting Industry sectors.

We respectfully acknowledge the past and present traditional owners and custodians of the land.

Working in conjunction with the Federal Government, one of the first steps RML Training Services is taking is developing skills to meet the needs of the Mining and Civil Contracting Industry is developing an Indigenous employment program for work as Diesel Fitters and Automotive Tradespeople. The program aims to offer successful Indigenous trainees’ opportunities to gain a pathway into a full-time trade apprenticeship, semi-skilled work as either a Trade Assistant or Service Person and to other engineering careers.

Program Overview

RML Group Mining Services are working to offer employment opportunities to the Indigenous community. We will recruit candidates for the program and offer on-going support right through to industry engagement.

The pre-employment Program will be delivered over a 17 week period with three intakes of 12 trainees. The training consists of three days per week blended learning of theory and practical experience in the Labrador workshop and a further two days’ work experience placement within local heavy industry. The first cohort will commence on 16 April 2012 and GCIT have dedicated a full time trainer to the program along with a second trainer available for support.

Along with the pre-employment training, Resources 101 will be held at the workshop five days per week for three weeks. The Resources 101 will cover safety inductions with core risk and safety skills, and is essential for working in the mines.

Training will be based at RML Group Mining Services Labrador workshop which has been fitted out as a “virtual mine site workshop” giving trainees the experience of the controls and processes in place within the mines. The workshop is fully equipped and an ideal training centre offering space for practical and theory learning.

RML Group Mining Services project management team will help the participants secure work experience placement for the nominated days. Trainees will be supported in their training and work experience placement by RML’s dedicated Project Coordinator.
