Course Outcome

To complete the course, students must successfully complete all assessments which are aligned with the national unit of competency.

Upon successful completion of the course requirements, students will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment (SOA).

Your Statement of Attainment does not have an expiry date, however, the Coal Mining Safety and Health Regulation 2001, section 84, requires that each coal mine worker at the mine, holding a certificate of competency, completes refresher training under the mine training scheme at least once in every five years.

As a result, a standard 11 lasts for 5 years before it is required to be refreshed to retain your currency.
