Marangka Training Program 2024

The Marangka Operator training program is a new incentive by Eastern Guruma aimed at providing an entry level opportunity to 13 selected Indigenous candidates into the mining industry.

The trainees will be starting their journey with EG in the head office for the first eight (8) weeks of the programme. This part of the program is aimed at introducing the trainees to the industry and be made familiar with industry standards for:

  • understanding EG policies;
  • overview of the mining and civil Industries;
  • indigenous mining and trade network;
  • occupational, work health & safety including hand safety;
  • environmental best practices;
  • introduction to mobile plant;
  • 3 x nationally accredited operator tickets (Articulated Haul truck, Front End Loader, IT Loader). Capped at 10 candidates in total, 3 remaining trainees will receive tickets of YTBD machines;
  • pre-start inspections;
  • introduction to hydraulics;
  • tyre management;
  • support plant operations; and
  • much more.

Upon completion of the eight (8) week office programme, the candidates will be placed into a three (3) months work placement in either:

  • Resource Development (RDE);
  • Road Maintenance (RDM);
  • Rehab; or
  • Labouring.

The aim of completing the program is to:

  • broaden the candidates experiences and exposure to the industry; and
  • the possibility of securing long term employment opportunities.

The program will be built around a similar fashion the Certificate III in Civil Construction Plant Operations and while our program is not nationally accredited, we aim to deliver a program that will educate the trainees and provide a better opportunity to enter the industry.
