Mining Exploration and Geoscience Courses
Award Courses provide a complete qualification for Certificate III in Mining Exploration and Diploma of Applied Geosciences.
Certificate III in Mining Exploration is a six month course tailored to meet the needs of the Australian exploration industry and produces graduates possessing a wide range of field skills.
The Diploma of Applied Geosciences continues for a further 18 months and covers theoretical and practical study aiming to produce graduates able to work unsupervised at a paraprofessional level.
The combination of theory and extensive ‘hands on’ training has enabled past graduates to apply their skills and knowledge across a broad range of employment opportunities throughout Australia and overseas.
Some course subjects are now available by flexible delivery and recognition of prior learning is available for students with relevant work experience or academic background.
The TAFE SA Department of Geoscience strongly values liaison with mineral and petroleum exploration companies and will endeavour to respond to industry needs.
