It has been a year since the AusIMM Board and Management Team communicated a clear, purposeful direction for our Institute, called Future Directions.
One part of this strategy that I am particularly proud of is our recently announced online JORC e-training program.This is a game changer for AusIMM.
In our industry, JORC is fundamental. It exemplifies the trust placed in our professionals by the wider community.
AusIMM identified a market need for high-quality training in understanding JORC and how to report Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves appropriately.
As a parent body of JORC, I firmly believe that we have an obligation to show leadership and deliver high-quality training to educate Competent Persons and industry more broadly.
This program is completely aligned with our Future Directions strategy and our commitment to be the Trusted Voice of resources professionals. The program will equip our members with the knowledge and confidence to be leaders in upholding this professional code that underpins our work.
The program has resonated in our industry, with high demand for the first course to be held in October. An additional program has now been scheduled for March 2019.
There is plenty more work to be done, but we have already hit the mark with our Future Directions strategy and are now looking forward to continuing to build AusIMM’s relevance and voice within industry and government in Australasia and beyond.
