During term 2 and 3 students in years 10, 11 and 12 had the opportunity to undertake a Certificate II in Resources and Infrastructure Work Preparation (RII20115) through SDS Training in Rockhampton.
Certificate II in Resources and Infrastructure Work Preparation qualification reflects the roles of individuals who perform mainly routine tasks and procedures, using limited practical skills and fundamental operational knowledge, and taking some responsibility for the quality of the work outcomes.
This certificate II is a possible career pathway to small mine operator, civil construction worker, open cut coal miner and more.
Students were required to attend SDS training 2 days a week for 6 weeks and a full week for their project. They all had the opportunity to obtain their white card, working at heights certificate and real workplace/site training. As part of their project our students needed to concrete two pathways at school. They were required to measure, prepare the area and set the concrete pathway within 5 days, which they achieved. All students involved productively worked together be it bringing each other water or helping with a team lift.
The personal growth this group of students have displayed is remarkable and they should be very proud of all their achievements as we are at Carinity.
15 students went to the info session and from that we had 11 students keen and eager to start the course. All 11 students completed the project week, with high attendance throughout the course. We look forward to working with SDS in the future and our 2019 R+I class have set the bar high for years to come.
