Enquiry:

I would like to know when is the practical registration form on the website going to be active? This is for Strata control practical registration. I know the March assessment applications are closed but I wanted to be assessed for August intake. Please assist.


Response:

Good day Lebohang
 
Thank you for your enquiry.
 
The Strata Control Officer practical registrations will open up online after the announcements of the Strata Control Officer theory results have been released by the Minerals Council, which normally occurs in July.
 
All SANIRE members will be notified of the opening via the web, social media and email correspondence.

Enquiry:

I would like to know what the process entails, in order to obtain the AREC, as I do not see any clear guidelines or contacts on the website?


Response:

Good day Jaco
 
Thank you for your enquiry. SANIRE is not the custodian of the AREC and therefore we would recommend that you contact the University of Witwatersrand who are the custodians of the AREC. The University of Witwatersrand will be able to assist with the process and courses required.

Suggestion:

The requirements for SCO practicals such as blasting certificate where will guys working for consulting companies get time to do that. Please reconsider that decision.


Response:

Dear SANIRE Member
 
Thank you for your suggestion. Please consult your local branch with a full explanation on the current requirements for entry to the Practical exams, as these requirements have been discussed on numerous public platforms within SANIRE and a consensus has been reached. Your local branch Chairman will be able to guide you in the right direction.
