Civil, Construction, and Mining Career Centre

About Your Qualification

Many Civil Supervisors and Foremen have been doing their job superbly for years, but now find that they need the formal qualification, the ‘piece of paper’, if they want to land a new job or move ahead in their present one. If this is you, then we get it. In fact, we get it so well that we have had hundreds of students, just like you, who have had their experience recognised towards their Civil Supervision and Management Qualifications.

Our School of Civil Construction offers you practical and relevant formal qualifications that have been specially designed for Leading Hands, Supervisors, Foremen, Managers, Project Managers, Engineers, Superintendents and Labourers wanting to have a career pathway backed up with formally recognised qualifications in the civil construction industry.

With Australia now being in the middle of an unprecedented mining boom, and the associated infrastructure planning, a higher level of civil construction employees are now very much in-demand by employers and their qualifications and skills highly valued in the following sections of the industry:

  • Earthworks
  • Roadworks
  • Drainage, Water and Sewerage
  • Power Stations
  • Gas and Mining
  • Bridgeworks
  • Fencing

Civil Construction

Civil construction is a career that will not disappear. We will always need civil construction workers and managers in order to not only build new structures and infrastructure, but to maintain or upgrade everything that was previously built.

Managers, in particular, are necessary to design and organise projects and to help analyse and solve problems on the job. Getting civil construction qualifications and other civil construction training will provide you with what you need in order to become upwardly mobile in your job.

The vast majority of managers in civil construction currently do not hold any type of formal accreditation or diploma. In these especially difficult economic times, not having your ‘piece of paper’ can be a severe disadvantage to your career. We can educate you and give you the credentials you need in order to gain employment more easily, gain recognition for any experience you might already have, and to gain the ability to earn higher wages than those without formal qualifications. In addition, those managers that can show proof of formal education are more easily able to garner promotions and advance their careers.

You don’t have to have previous managerial experience to undertake civil construction. Management training and organisations like Global Training Institute offer flexible learning options. They will teach you the basics, tailoring their program to your job experience.

Formal Civil Supervision and Management qualifications are valued in many sections of the industry including:

  • Earthworks
  • Roadworks
  • Drainage, Water and Sewerage
  • Power Stations
  • Gas and Mining
  • Bridgeworks
  • Fencing

Your education will include practical problems which you must solve, in addition to courses on people skills and business practices. The online courses available will mesh well with your lifestyle. You can work on civil construction qualifications as your time schedule allows, without the need to be present in person for lectures or practicals. You work on your credentials on your time, in your own space. All you need is access to a working computer and internet.

As of the 30th June 2011 the Coal Mining Safety and Health Advisory Committee determined that all persons appointed as a site senior executive (SSE) under the Coal Mining Safety and Health Act 1999 are required to demonstrate to the Board of Examiners their knowledge of the current Queensland coal mining legislation by undertaking a written examination (“the SSE examination”) before appointment to the role in accordance with section 54(1) of the Act.

In addition they must possess a qualification in risk management in either:

  1. RIIRIS601D or commonly known as ‘G3’
  2. MINE7033 or
  3. GMIRM

Holding a Notice from the Board of Examiners of compliance with this requirement is a prerequisite to taking up duties as an SSE. This includes ‘acting’ as a SSE.
