Certificate of Competence

CPD is mandatory for all A-Grade and B-Grade Certificate of Competence holders. This is required by Regulation 43 of Health and Safety (Mining Operations and Quarrying Operations) Regulation 2016.

Certificate of Competence holders must follow the CPD Guidelines and must record their CPD activities and key learnings from their CPD activities, in a WorkSafe endorsed CPD logbook.
