Site Specific Training

The Mine Safety and Health Administration requires inexperienced or new miners to receive 24 hours of training prior to being issued a 5000-23 certificate. Site-specific task and hazard awareness training will not be included in this training session because of student diversity. The 16- Hour training is tailored for individuals who will receive an additional 8-hour of site-specific training from the mine operator. The site-specific training must be conducted at the mine site according to the mine operator's training plan if required and provided by the mine operator.
