Driver Development Program

In partnership with SES Labour hire Solutions and Bromelton Quarry, Major Training has put together an exciting new Driver Development Mining Program.

Learn how to operate some of the biggest rigs in Australia with Major Training’s mining courses in Brisbane.

Our new driver development course teaches skills that are critical for gaining employment in the mining and construction industry.

Upon graduating, you’ll be qualified to safely drive a haul truck and hold your Standard 11, as well as having an opportunity to interview with SES Labour Solutions for a position.

5-Day Driver Development Mining Program

Major Training’s 5-Day Driver Development Mining Program will get you qualified quickly so you can start interviewing for real mining jobs in QLD.  Rather than trying to secure an entry-level role without any formal qualifications, completing this course will significantly enhance your employability.

As part of the course, SES Labour Solutions will:

  1. Send you a link to a screening tool.
  2. Conduct a job interview with you. During the interview, they’ll ask you a range of technical and behavioural questions that will give you the opportunity to “sell yourself”. They’ll also:
  • Discuss with you some of the arrangements that go with working in the mining industry in QLD, e.g. rosters, rates of pay, travel arrangements
  • Discuss the range of opportunities that exist in the industry.
  1. At the completion of the interview, they’ll provide:
  • Feedback and tips to succeed in interviews
  • Confirmation of the next steps they take with you, which may include adding you to their database of candidates and actively working with you to find an employment opportunity
  • Suggestions on other training or development opportunities you should consider to be more job-ready.

Course Objective

The key objective of our Driver Development Mining Program is to help students earn nationally recognised haul truck licence and Standard 11 through comprehensive driver training.

Major Training’s course is unique as it’s delivered in real-world conditions by expert trainers, with real employment opportunities available to graduates.

Course Delivery

The delivery of Major Training’s driver development program involves five days of concentrated learning. This fast-paced but intensive course structure allows students to learn correct methods of operation with minimal interruption to their everyday lives.

The course is structured so students can make the most of each day and develop skills rapidly. To prepare you for operating heavy vehicles on mine sites, four of the five days the training is conducted in a live quarry located in Beaudesert at Bromelton Quarry so students get a real live feel for the industry

Students will start at 6am to ensure they’re present for the Toolbox Talk with the team at the quarry.
