The SSC provides a number of training courses or workshops annually (primarily through the Geological Society of South Africa and the Southern African Institute for Mining and Metallurgy) that cater specifically to the needs of CP/CV/QRE’s. The majority of these courses/workshops are directed at technical (geoscientific/engineering) professions who compile Public Reports (including Competent Person’s Reports, Valuation Reports and Qualified Reserve Evaluator’s Reports). However, some of the courses may be of specific interest to non-technical professionals who compile valuation reports, fair and reasonable opinions, etc.
The SSC recommends that practicing CP/CV/QRE’s should attend at least one of these courses in a five-year cycle.
In conjunction with courses run by the GSSA and SAIMM, the SSC highlights the following courses/workshops/webinars for 2023 which are planned or being considered:
