Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (AusIMM)
2019 Innovation Name: Online Professional Certificate in JORC Code Reporting
Awards: 6th Most Innovative Government, Education & Not-For-Profit Company
AusIMM developed an online training course to upskill global mining professionals on the Australian mining standard (the “JORC Code”). The product is a world-first – it is delivered online, it features fifteen international industry experts and it provides participants with a professional certificate upon satisfactory completion. Our course is delivered via a world-leading online learning provider (Cahoot Learning) that has been used by globally-recognised universities like MIT and Stanford. The content was developed by multiple industry leaders and curated from AusIMM’s diverse professional communities.
The product meets the following strategic objectives for AusIMM and the Australian mining industry:
• It delivers a relevant (and much-needed) premium professional development course for mining professionals;
• Its online delivery allows access from anywhere in the world, and has therefore increased awareness and understanding of an Australian mining standard with global markets; and
• It has added a new revenue stream for AusIMM, bringing in more than $600,000 in its first six months.
