Explosives Training – Becoming a Shotfirer in the Mining Industry
In the past, the best way into a mining job was through the blast crew. Legislation has changed in most states, forced partly by safety but also by security. Now to get a position on a blast crew a person generally has to have some form of training in legislative responsibilities and safety in Handling, Transport and Storage of Explosives. Blastcon provide nationally recognised training programs to help you to achieve a position in the mining industry.
Persons must be at least 18 years of age and have an acceptable Police and ASIO clearance certificate.
Blastcon provides an extensive range of training for the explosive/shotfiring and SSAN sectors.
