The operation of a mine draws on a wide range of skills. In large mines, the para-professional may well specialise in a small number of areas such as contract administration or mine monitoring. In smaller mining operations, the para-professional will need to adopt many varied roles. This course provides a background to the operation of typical mines which will enable the graduate to undertake work in some of the major areas concerned with the day-to-day operation of a mine, including multi-task scheduling, contract administration and mine surveying.
