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
