Countermine Training

Minelab places great emphasis on its operator and technician training support to customers. All Minelab Countermine staff are accredited instructors and qualified in adult education techniques.

Emphasis is placed on "hands on" practical instruction with the complexity of theoretical instruction dependent on the role of the student.
