  • 10901NAT – Course in Operate the THUNDERBOLT Recoilless Hammer
  • 10902NAT – Course in Operate the Mill Reline Machine

RME's customised training can draw on modules developed to enable participants to understand various elements of operation, safety, and rudimentary maintenance of:

  • The range of THUNDERBOLT Hammers
  • THUNDERBOLT Suspension and Power Packs

RME can develop and run training courses from these modules exclusively for your mine site. Our training is focused on what we know best; our Mill Relining System. However, if you have a particular need for training on a non-RME Mill Relining System topic, such as forklift operation or confined spaces, please let us know, and we will work with you to determine whether this is suitable to package in with the RME Mill Relining System training.

Customised Courses

Just as RME's Mill Relining System is tailored for the needs of each individual mine site, RME's training can also be customised to match specific equipment at any site. These courses are provided at the highest training and mining industry standards, and are developed according to AQF.

Who should attend?

RME's training courses are relevant to a variety of personnel, including:

  • Mill reline crews
  • Mill operations personnel
  • Potential purchasers of equipment



RME has experienced, qualified trainers who will travel to your site to deliver training or alternately you can send your personnel to RME's purpose designed and built training centre in Toowoomba, Australia.

For on site training, the resources required at site include:

  • Independent tie down point for the RUSSELL Mill Relining Machine
  • Training room for theory training
