An Initiative of the Institute of Quarrying Australia

The Institute of Quarrying Australia (IQA) is the professional body for quarrying and related industries and has had as a long-term aim to establish a national system of certification for practitioners in the quarry industry. The IQA will achieve this aim through the establishment of the QMCS in conjunction with the CP Board, by providing:

  • an independent certification system, administered with integrity and transparency, and which demonstrates a path to certification of Quarry Supervisors and Quarry Managers based on comprehensive experience, qualifications, OPD and continuing practice;
  • resources to assist quarry practitioners to develop knowledge and skills in a supportive work environment to attain certification under the QMCS; and
  • benchmarks for employers to encourage their staff to seek and maintain certification under the QMCS through the development of skills, training and experience.

The following flowchart illustrates the current QMCS framework and pathways to certification as  Certified Practitioner (CP):

Further information regarding specific criteria or requirements for comprehensive experience, qualifications, OPD and continuing practice will be determined by the CP Board and published by the Institute in accordance with these Rules:
