Standard 11 - Surface Induction 

Course Description

This Standard 11 – Surface Induction has been specifically designed for candidates wishing to obtain a Generic Induction Passport, which will allow them to work a Coal Mine Site in Queensland.


NHST offer two pathways for Standard 11 with a 2 day or 3 day program. Please read below for further detail.


Nationally Accredited Training

Upon successful completion of your Standard 11 – Surface Induction 3 day program you will receive:

    • Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment
This course structure allows you to obtain your Statement of Attainment ready for site entry. Your Standard 11 Surface Induction Passport is processed and mailed out to you by ESQ. We recommend this course for job seekers, new employees or those who require entry on-site immediately.
Upon successful completion of your Standard 11 - Surface Induction 2 day program you will initially receive:
    • Statement of Completion
    • Workbook - To Be Completed On-site


The candidate must return the workbook within six (6) months from course completion for it to be assessed by New Horizons Safety and Training Services.

Once the workbook have been completed successfully and returned to New Horizons Safety and Training Services, the candidate will be issued the following:

    • Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment
    • Standard 11 Surface Induction Passport - Valid For Five (5) Years (you must maintain your currency to renew in 5 years time)
This program option is great for participants who are already employed and able to be inducted on site after the two day course.



It is a requirement by industry to have the workbook completed onsite before having a Statement of Attainment issued to the candidate. We do recommend contacting the site you work for or intend on working for to confirm any processes they may have in place.

This training program includes the following units of competencies:

    • RIIWHS201D Work safely and follow WHS policies and procedures
    • RIIERR205D Apply initial response First Aid
    • RIIGOV201D Comply with site work processes/procedures
    • RIIRIS201D Conduct local risk control
    • RIICOM201D Communicate in the workplace
    • RIIERR302D Respond to local emergencies and incidents


Candidates of the Standard 11 – Surface Induction will develop real skills by being involved in practical activities conducted in our own workshop. Skills that are fundamentally important to the mining industry such as:

    • Hazard identification
    • Risk control
    • Isolating and tagging
    • Communication
    • Manual handling
    • Use and control of hazardous substances


These skills are an integral part of the Standard 11 – Surface Induction and workshop activities will provide participants with opportunity to develop those skills.



Recognised Standard 11 – Information

The purpose of this standard is to assist sites to establish and maintain a training system which includes processes for identifying and delivering competent, safe and efficient work teams. Recognised Standard 11 compliant Coal Mining Induction training programs have been developed to assist mine sites in meeting their legislative obligations.


BMA Mine Site Induction

This induction is not valid for BMA Mine Sites, however after you have received your statement of attainment you can complete the BMA Bridging Program with BMA. This will allow candidates to have dual Standard 11 – Surface Inductions valid for both BMA and non-BMA sites. We recommend contacting BMA before enrolling to ensure you complete the right course for you.


Course Outcomes

On successful completion of this training course, candidates will be issued with a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment and a Standard 11 – Surface Induction card valid for five (5) years.
