MSHA 16-Hour Training for New/Inexperienced Metal/Non-Metal Surface Miners
Course Time: 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
This two-day program covers the general aspects of the initial training requirements for owners and operators under 30 CFR Part 48. The objective is to train new/inexperienced miners on the safety and health hazards in the surface metal/non-metal industry. Participants will learn their rights and responsibilities, job related safety procedures and rescue and first aid techniques. Please pre-register for the course.
MSHA Site Specific Training: MSHA requires new/inexperienced miners receive 24-hour of training before being issued a completed 5000-23 certificate. Due to the diversity of our students, site-specific task and hazard awareness training will not be included in this training session. This is a 16-hour class, and is designed for individuals who will receive an additional eight-hours of site-specific training from the mine operator. If required and provided by the mine operator, the site-specific training must be conducted at the mine site according to the mine operator’s training plan. A 5000-23 form will be issued.
