Case for Change
The objective of this project is to review the drilling and exploration units of competency in the RII training package.
A Case for Change for this project was approved by the AISC in August 2018.
Skills for Australia commenced industry consultations for this project from November 2018.
Consultation for the Drilling project seeks to identify how we can adapt competencies to align with the emergence of new technologies (such as sonic drilling, coil tube drilling and cyber-chair drilling) and accommodate the need for workforce agility, safety considerations and increased managerial skills within the sector.
Consultations for the Exploration project will focus on how we can make qualifications more accessible and further meet industry needs by addressing technological advancements and environmental concerns (for example, ensure adequate training for the monitoring of silica dust levels and Diesel Particulate Matter).

Training Product Development
Following the MDCI IRCs’ approval of our key findings from consultation, we have developed draft training products to address the skills gaps identified for the industry.
The first and second batches of these draft training products are now available for public review.
Click on the links below to download the documents and find out how to submit your feedback.
We will be accepting your feedback on the first batch until COB Friday October 4th, and the second batch until COB Friday November 8th, 2019.
The next step is to develop a Case for Endorsement for changes to the RII Training Package, which is to be provided to the MDCI IRCs for approval and submitted to the AISC later this year.
