Is the MSHA part 48 refresher course the same as the one given to NEW miners upon initial employment? If not, do you offer the necessary new miner pt. 48?

Like so many other careers that are out there, becoming a miner cannot be done over night. There are a number of prerequisites that must be met before one can start working in the mines. Luckily, technology is starting to make it a little bit more convenient to meet these requirements - specifically in your case with the option of taking the MSHA Part 48 Surface Mining course online. This online course offers it participants a flexible option for developing the necessary knowledge that they will need for ensuring a safe workplace in any mining position. At the completion of this online MSNA Part 48 course, students will be able to recognize and avoid the hazards that one may be exposed to on a regular basis and those which occur unexpectedly.

Also, you might be interested in the online MSHA Part 46 Course. This online course will guide you in developing your knowledge of safety and awareness training to persons performing all types of mining activities.

Now with all of this said, requirements for working in a mining environment do vary depending on the state you are working in. So, I would suggest that you contact your state's mining agency about the requirements for working within a mining position. This way you have the full extent of what the requirements are.
