Mining training conference to focus on quality training

Resources Sector training Conference 2020 - Open cut mine

More than 200 people are expected to attend the 5th 2020 Resources Training Council Conference targeted at resources and mining training practitioners in Brisbane next year. 

The two-day conference and exhibition event, to be held on 25-26 May 2020, will focus on the delivery of better training and safety outcomes for Australian workforces in resources and associated industries. 

The theme of the conference ‘Driving Quality Training’ will focus on driving improvement in skilling and training to ensure that all Australian resources industry workers go home safely every shift. 

The conference is aimed at bringing people together across all resources sectors in Queensland, Australia and abroad such as New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Individuals in roles such as legislators, training managers, safety health and training managers, training superintendents and coordinators, site training personnel, RTO personnel, trainer and assessors, service contractors and labour-hire personnel will be in attendance. 

The 2020 event also encompasses the Innovative Skilling Awards Dinner. Three trophies will be presented to recognise creativity and leading practice in driving quality training in the industry. 


The CEO of the Resources Training Council, Mrs Heather Munro said “Despite some difficult economic headwinds in recent years, the Resources Training Council continue to be recognised by the industry, media and government as the voice of resources training in Australia with members from all states and territories”. 

“We’re now going abroad attracting key conference delegates from across the country and beyond because of the unique opportunity to learn from world-leading experts, to meet key industry decision-makers and government representatives, network, and to see first-hand new product and service innovations”, she said. 

Mrs Munro said, “the conference and exhibition event will be a highlight of the Australian resources industry calendar and is a must-attend event for anyone who shares our commitment to deliver better training and safety outcomes for Australian workforces in resources and associated industries”. 

“The conference will create networking opportunities and sharing leading practice. This is why our 2020 Conference and Exhibition, inclusive of the Innovative Skilling Awards Dinner, is such an important event. It’s a great opportunity for people to come together from across Australia and abroad from every sector to ensure a more sustainable and better resources training industry through driving quality training”, she said. 

Founded in 2011 by a group of registered training organisations bound by a commitment to promote leading mining training practices, the Resources Training Council share leading practice, encourage innovation and drive operational improvements, efficiencies and effectiveness to ensure that the industry has safe, productive workers. 

The Resources Training Council, a not-for-profit organisation, are committed to making the training in the resources and associated industries responsive to current and future needs and ensuring the industry is more sustainable and profitable.
