Bay College Offers New Miner Training


Bay College Training and Development will be offering a 24-Hour New/Inexperienced Miner Training in partnership with the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). This three-day “new miner” training covers all aspects of the initial training requirements for owners and operators under 30 CFR Part 48 & 30 CFR Part 46. The objective is to train new and inexperienced miners on safety and health hazards, employee rights and responsibilities, and job-related safety procedures. Important topics such as fall protection, confined space, and personal protective equipment will be covered. This course satisfies the MSHA classroom requirement for new/inexperienced miner training. Upon completion, students will receive a 5000-23 training certificate. Training must be renewed annually with the MSHA 8-hour Refresher course.

The MSHA 24-Hour New/Inexperienced Miner training will be offered on February 19, 20, and 21 from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the M-TEC building on the Bay College campus in Escanaba. The cost of the training is $189.00, which includes continental breakfast and lunch each day. To register or view other trainings, visit the Bay College Training and Development web page.
