AusIMM and Cahoot Learning launch Mining 4.0 Academy

  • By AusIMM

As part of the new wave of digital professional development, AusIMM and online professional education experts Cahoot Learning have launched the new Mining 4.0 Academy, comprising short and practical certified courses designed to uplift professional skills and capabilities.

Commencing in July with a focus on digital skills, human capabilities and contemporary ways of working, the Mining 4.0 Academy will deliver opportunities for professionals to gain practical insights and develop behaviours necessary to be effective in a rapidly changing industry and world.

The Mining 4.0 Academy has collaborated closely with the resources industry to identify the key workforce capabilities and skills required within organisations as a result of the Industry 4.0 revolution. Based on these learnings, the Academy has developed a suite of relevant three-week courses specifically designed for organisations to address these gaps within their workforces.

Courses include Adaptive Leadership, Resilience at Work, Get Cybersmart and Data Exploration and Storytelling. Participants will discover ways to respond and lead under challenging new circumstances and in so doing to assist their organisations to adjust to the digital age.

AusIMM CEO Stephen Durkin said that the organisation was committed to providing leading professional development that was specific to the needs of professionals in a changing industry.

‘AusIMM remains committed to providing resources professionals with opportunities to continue to meet the changing skills gap in the industry. The latest short course series will no doubt encourage and support contemporary ways of working,’ said Mr Durkin.

‘AusIMM is proud to collaborate with Cahoot Learning to build on delivering this capability. Cahoot Learning’s unique and effective model of relationship-based learning has been honed through working closely with world leading learning institutions such as Stanford University’s Center for Professional Development and MIT Professional Education.’

Co-founders of Cahoot Learning, Anthony Morris and Errol la Grange, also expressed their support for the new venture and successful ongoing relationship with AusIMM.

‘Impactful lifelong learning is an economic imperative for individuals, organisations and entire economies. In this new normal, developing close strategic relationships to deliver strong outcomes for stakeholders is an imperative,’ Mr Morris said.  

The Adaptive Leadership course commences 6 July 2020, with the Resilience at Work course beginning 27 July 2020. Enrolment for both courses is now open.
