The MQA, as delegated quality assurance function by the Quality Council for trade and Occupations (QCTO), has a responsibility to maintain quality of training assessments throughout the mining and minerals sector. One way of doing this is to establish a criteria for the accreditation of providers and registration of assessors and moderators.
Applicants as training providers can fall into none of two categories:
- Accredited Training Provider or
- Programme Approval Provider
