The Mining Industry Human Resource Council (MiHR) acknowledged that there wasn’t a Canada-wide program that recognized the skilled workers of our industry. MiHR designed the Canadian Mining Certification Program (CMCP) to recognize the skills, knowledge and experience of mining workers, provide workers with portable credentials, and enable employers to accurately and consistently verify the skills and experience of job applicants and support ongoing professional recognition for their employees.
To date, under the guidance of industry development committees, MiHR has developed four National Occupational Standards - Underground Miner, Surface Miner, Minerals Processing Operator and Diamond Driller.
A number of sites throughout BC have been credentialed to provide the assessment, training, and recognition.
