MSHA 32 hour training

MSHA 32-Hour Training for Inexperienced Underground Miners

This four-day classroom training gives new miners the knowledge they need to face the safety and health hazards involved in underground mining under 30 CFR Part 48. Participants will learn their rights and responsibilities, job-related safety procedures, rescue, and first aid techniques. Students will receive their MSHA 5000-23 form upon completion of the 32 hours; however, eight hours of training will be held at the mine site. Preregistration is required for this course.

Requirements for "MSHA Introduction to Work Environment" 

This course provides participants with 32 of the 40 required training hours. Due to our students' diversity, task and hazard awareness training will not be included in the training session. This course must be conducted at the mine site according to the mine operator's training plan and constitutes the remaining eight hours of required training for underground miners.

Course fee is $520 per person.

This course can also be offered on site. Please contact the Penn State Beaver Office of Continuing Education, 724-773-3700, to discuss your scheduling needs and group rates.
