CQUniversity today announced a collaboration with resources and infrastructure training provider MyneSight that will increase training delivery at Rockhampton’s School of Mining (SoM).

MyneSight is a resource and infrastructure training organisation that provides training and assessment services to the open-cut and underground mining industry.

CQUniversity Vice-President Academic Professor Michelle Bellingan said the collaboration would boost opportunities for students in the region. 

“CQU will work in collaboration with MyneSight to facilitate the delivery of vocational education and training (VET) qualifications and courses, increasing the mining-related training available to our SoM students,” Professor Bellingan said.

“We’re delighted to collaborate with MyneSight and look forward to working together into the future.”
