We encourage all members to upload and read the attached document, distributed 14 June 2010:

Certificate of Competency for Surface Mine Manager

It is understood that proponents of the proposed document, Minex, have thought through many facets on which to base a competency certificate and believe that the document will provide our industry with “exactly what is needed”. Equally there may be some aspects that need deeper investigation or need challenging.So, for those of you who are reading the proposed document for the first time, or attended the Napier Combined IOQ/AQA Conference in July 2010 but did not have the opportunity to have your questions and/or comments heard, please forward them or discuss directly with your National Executive members:
President, Warwick Leach or P 07 862 7007
Vice-President, Gavin Hartley or P 03 487 9031 or
George Kelcher or P (03) 437 0458

Please include Christine Dodds IOQ Secretary / Treasurer in any correspondence so the IOQNZ can collate all comments, queries, suggestions.

Many thanks


Note from Minex Secretary:
Further to my earlier email and after a meeting between MinEx, AQA and IOQ on 12 August, this is to advise that the closing date for submissions has been further extended to 30 September 2010.
