Careers in the mining industry: new challenges ahead

Jean-Alain Fleurisson, Head of the Training team in mining Engineering at MINES ParisTech, gave a speech at the 1st National Workshop on Vocational Training in mining which took place in Kinshasa in Democratic Republic of Congo on March 10th and 11th 2016.

On this occasion, he reminded two key issues of vocational training in the mining industry:

Meeting the new challenges of the mining industry and mining projects:
Future ore deposits will be deeper, less rich and more complex from a geological point of view, and their mining will require better performing techniques often based on advanced technologies, which efficient use requires good quality training. Future mining projects will also have to be better integrated into the physical and human environment, that will require incorporating a transverse dimension related to human and social sciences to the traditional scientific and technical disciplines of the mining industry;

Improving the qualifications and skills of employees:
The initial training of young employees is not always tuned to the job and must therefore be completed by a more vocational training. In addition, jobs also evolve over time, which implies ongoing professional adaptation or even retraining. Experience shows that only well trained personnel can produce and manage innovation and are able to take on new responsibilities at the service of their company or institution.
