December 2017 – Mines Rescue RTO celebrates 21 years

Any business can deliver training, but it takes hard work and meticulous dedication to obtain the authoritative and respectable status of a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

As an RTO and provider of specialist industry training, NSW Mines Rescue (Mines Rescue) plays a critical role in assisting workers and employers to manage risk and operate safely. While Mines Rescue has been established for more than 90 years, the business recently reached another significant milestone. Mines Rescue was first registered as an RTO on Tuesday, 24 October 1996 and 21 years on continues to be an industry leader in the safety training sector.

To continue to operate as an RTO, organisations are required to re-register with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) every five years. This process ensures all RTO’s adhere to the high standards required to deliver nationally accredited training.

‘Mines Rescue’s longevity as an RTO is testament to the extensive, ongoing commitment from the Training Coordination Team and implementation of quality initiatives by the entire Mines Rescue team to continue to meet the changing training needs of our industry,’ explained Matt Fellowes, General Manager Mines Rescue and Regulation & Compliance.

“I would like to thank the entire Mines Rescue team for their hard work and acknowledge the continued dedication from the Training Coordination Team in achieving this milestone.”
