Question: Can I write Rock Mechanics papers with only Strata Control theory? As I heard there are people writing without the full Strata Control ticket?


Good Day SANIRE Member
Thank you for raising your question/concern.
The rules of examinations clearly state that you require a FULL Strata Control Officer Certificate (SCO) as a prerequisite for the Rock Engineering Theory Exams. In terms of FULL, this means the theory section and practical section completed and passed.
We are concerned that rumours and allegations are floating around with regards to your statement. We would request that if you are aware of any individuals which are currently conducting this behaviour that you anonymously inform the SANIRE council so that we correct this behaviour and ensure fair treatment to all members.
Thanking you
SANIRE President
