What is MQA learnership?

MQA learnership refers to a learnership program offered by the Mining Qualifications Authority (MQA) in South Africa. The MQA is a statutory body established in terms of the Mine Health and Safety Act to oversee the development and management of education, training and skills development in the mining industry.

The MQA learnership program is designed to provide practical training and theoretical knowledge to individuals who want to work in the mining industry. The program is offered to individuals who have completed Grade 12 or have an equivalent qualification, and it covers a wide range of mining-related topics, such as safety, health, environmental awareness, and technical skills.

The learnership program typically lasts for a period of 12 months and combines classroom-based training with practical on-the-job training. Participants are usually paid a stipend during the training period, and upon completion of the program, they receive a nationally recognized qualification, which can improve their chances of finding employment in the mining industry.
