These courses are aimed at individuals who are interested in working at US mines regulated by the MSHA. Individuals with mining experience in other countries, or who have worked in the US mining industry but never met the MSHA training requirements for new miners will also find this course helpful. These courses will focus on the requirements set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR 30) Part 48.
This is a 4-day course and includes both classroom training and field activities conducted at the Edgar Experimental Mine. Students will receive an MSHA Form 5000-23 certifying that they have completed 32 hours of training for underground mines.
This course is a 3-day course and fully meets all Federal requirements for anyone working at a surface mine. Upon completion of the course, students will receive an MSHA Form 5000-23 certifying that they have completed 24 hours of training for surface mines.
