About Us

MinRes Training Institute

MinRes Training Institute specialises particularly, but not exclusively in two similarly different fields of expertise.

We've a Director and Training Coordinator who is a Certified Practicing Quarry Manager with over 30 years experience in the mineral and hard rock quarry industries.

David runs the Anderleigh Quarry north of Gympie and implements his Learn Operate Survive Program with a no-nonsense attitude and a Zero Harm Zero Tolerance commitment to mining safely and responsibly.

Our other Director is a Master Jeweller with more than 20 years experience manufacturing and hand making fine jewellery.

While working in close consultation with our clients in both sectors, our core business is to provide continual improvement qualifying individuals with a broad range of knowledge and skills to undertake work as a pathway for future learning.

We do this by designing accredited training programs to enable graduates to demonstrate learning outcomes expressed as the application of knowledge and the demonstration of skills.

We take pride in the delivery of every certificate we issue, ensuring that all our programs are current and bench-marked to the highest standards.
