Why the IQA for Professional Development?

The Institute of Quarrying Australia’s vision is “Educating and connecting our extractive industry”. The IQA believes education and training is a life-long opportunity which should be viewed in the broadest terms, involving initial qualifications gained at vocational and/or tertiary education programs, on the job training and ongoing professional development. 

Continuing professional development is important in the extractive industry as it supports improvements in workplace safety, environmental management, community outcomes and business performance. 

The IQA continues to develop and deliver educational platforms, through a consolidated single source, which are industry specific and designed to assist in meeting duty of care and competency requirements for statutory positions. As a member-based organisation, the IQA is working to lift the standard within the industry across many areas including: safety, environment and people development. 

Whether you are an experienced quarry manager, a quarry supervisor or operator with years of experience in the industry, a new graduate or someone looking to advance their career or gain professional competencies, continuing professional development and quarry manager courses are important. Ongoing education ensures you keep pace with current standards and regulation, have opportunities for career progression and can contribute to a safe work environment.
