ON THE DAY OF THE TRAINING

- The Instructor will lead the training using SWF, FLV or MP4 presentations, long and short videos, quizzes, and a touch of sense of humor.
- At the end of the training, the MSHA Instructor may ask you to complete some quizzes.
- You get your signed MSHA 5000-23 form and you’re good to go!
- On-site Training is available on demand. Rates for Surface Mines are the same as for online training (Underground Mines pricing provided at the time of the request). The customer in will pay travel and lodging expenses.
- A miner trained under Part 46, needs training for a mine site that falls under Part 48, as a new miner with no experience.
- To be able to provide annual refresher training, we will need to see documentation verifying each miner’s past MSHA safety training. If we cannot verify training, MST and MSHA will have to assume that the miner has no training and he will need the “New Miner” training.
- Keep all your training records! MSHA does not keep copies of past training. This is very important
- For metal non-metal underground mining, 32 hours of training is required and an additional 8-hour site specific training at an underground mine site.
- Surface and Underground “New Miner” training is available, if you need certification on both. Call or email to discuss the details.
We recommend that you get First Aid/CPR certification that must renew every three years. You can do this at your local Fire Department or Red Cross.
For Coal Mines (Includes coal mining only, nothing else):
- Surface Coal Mines: “New Miner” training requires 24 hours of training.
- Underground Coal Mines: “New Miner” training requires 40 hours of training for underground coal mines.
