Enrolments are now open for the April 2021 Intake to attend the Online Professional Certificate in JORC Code Reporting.
The Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (‘the JORC Code’) is a professional code of practice that sets minimum standards for public reporting of minerals exploration results, mineral resources and ore reserves.
This course has been specifically designed for resources professionals responsible for drafting JORC Code Reports (e.g. Competent Persons or aspiring Competent Persons). In eight-weeks you will develop an in-depth understanding of the JORC Code, including recognising obligations and liabilities, demonstrating its correct applications across different industries, and appropriately applying the Code in the reporting environment under the ASX and ASIC.
About the Course
The eight-week course consists of six modules delivered over six weeks, with two additional weeks to complete a final assignment. Each of the six modules contains a 90-minute live webinar delivered by two industry experts. The weekly webinars will be recorded and can be viewed at a later date if participants are unable to attend the live session.
Throughout the course participants will engage in interactive learning activities facilitated by industry experts, that can be completed in their own time within that module week. Additional associated learning resources will be provided such as real-life case studies and bespoke videos.
The final assignment implements newfound knowledge with opportunity for personalised feedback from expert facilitator. A professional certificate awarded upon completion of all learning activities and final assignment.
