The WA Regulations Workshop, held on 11th October 2019 at the Northern Metropolitan TAFE, was a great forum to continue the discussions about the changes to the Regulations for the Authorised Mine Surveyors and the Certification process going forward.
This workshop outlined some of the proposed changes and was an opportunity for the industry represents to discuss and comment on how they would like the Mine Surveying profession to be regulated going forward in Western Australia. The information gathered was compiled and submitted to the DMIRS as part of the public consultation phase.
Following the WA Regulations Workshop we had a good turn out of about 30 people to listen to the range of CPD presentations. Special thanks to all the people who presented and the company’s involved for allowing their findings to be shared.
