A delegation from education and training institutions within the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources has visited Western Australia to look at leading practice in training.
Nine representatives from the Education and Training Center for Geology, the Indonesian Education and Training Center for Mineral and Coal, and the Education and Training Agency of the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ETAEMR) participated in the tour.
They examined practices in technical, university and professional development education and training in geology and mining.
The week-long tour incorporated a field trip to Kalgoorlie, as well as visits to The University of Western Australia and Curtin University’s Western Australian School of Mines (WASM), technical colleges – including Central Institute of Technology and Goldfields Institute of Technology – and a variety of State Government departments – including the Department of Training and Workforce Development and the Resources Industry Training Council where delegates were encouraged to develop links and networks.
This visit follows an Indonesian Ministry study tour to Queensland earlier in October. This focused on leading practice in a number of fields related to the goverance of mining activities, efficient supply chains, processing and value-adding to minerals and energy resources, and planning and infrastructure in mining regions.
