Surface Miner Training – MSHA Part 46 Courses
The online training Packages and Individual Courses offered below are designed in compliance with MSHA requirements for the training and retraining of miners based on the Title 30 CFR – Part 46 regulations for surface miners and surface mining contractors.
These training courses were developed by Convergence Training and recognized by MSHA with a First Place award for software at the 2008 TRAM (Training Resources Applied to Mining) Conference.
MSHA Part 46 regulations require that New Miners complete a minimum of 24 hours of training within their first 90 days of employment, 4 hours of which must be completed prior to beginning work at the mine. Our MSHA New Miner Training offers over 8 hours of training that was created to meet the training subject requirements in 30 CFR 46.5. This is everything you need to get you on the job safely whether you are a Surface Miner or Surface Miner Contractor.
MSHA requires that all Surface Miners and Surface Mining Contractors complete a minimum of 8 hours of Annual Refresher training per year. Your Annual Refresher training must cover Changes at the Mine that could adversely affect a miner’s health or safety and other health and safety subjects relevant to mining operations at the time. Our Annual Refresher Training covers the second component that is required in MSHA Part 46.8, our training will keep you compliant and up to date on health and safety subjects that are relevant to mining operations.
