Changes to applications for examinations and statutory functions certificates


The Mining and Petroleum Competence Board at its November 2017 meeting requested a change to the process for achieving a certificate of competence in the non-coal industry.

The Mining and Petroleum Competence Board has endorsed changes by the Resources Regulator to the process for people to obtain a certificate of competence from 2019:
  1. Pay the fee when submitting the application for examinations. Further information about fees is available in section 4 of the guide (see link below)
  2. No longer required to provide evidence they hold a current first aid certificate.
  3. To provide evidence that they hold the prescribed unit of emergency preparedness and response, as stated in Annexure 8 of the guide (see link below)
  4. To prepare for all written examinations in a closed book format.

Candidates will be provided with extracts of documentation required for their particular exam and cannot bring in their own reference material.
