Class Profile: Online MSHA Part 46 Refresher Training

online MSHA Part 46 refresher training AND Mining Training

Are you a surface miner? Do you perform construction or contractor services at a mine? Zack Academy recently launched an Online MSHA Part 46 Refresher Training course. This online course satisfies annual training requirements from MSHA - so if you're a mine worker who falls under Part 46 of MSHA Title 30, listen up!

The Online MSHA Part 46 Refresher Training course was developed with miners in mind. Because miners often work varied hours in remote locations, the course allows miners to work at their own pace wherever they are. In the end, miners earn the exact same certificate as someone who attends the in-person class.

Miners under MSHA Title 30, Part 46 are required to take a Part 46 MSHA course annually. Miners in this category are usually surface miners working with sand, gravel or limestone. Furthermore, anyone expecting to work at a mine and be exposed to hazards (such as constructors or contractors) must take MSHA training.

This is an annual refresher course - that means if you haven't received MSHA training in over a year or you have never received MSHA training, this course isn't for you.

The online course reviews important mining training topics such as emergency evacuation, first-aid, silica dust awareness and other hazards present in a mine. The course also informs miners about updates to legal requirements in the industry.

Students are granted 24/7 access to complete the modules in the course. The course satisfies the minimum credit hours toward the annual refresher training. Students who complete the course can also earn 0.8 IACET CEUs.

Considering this online option? Here are some tips:
  • Do have reliable access to a computer with high speed Internet. Devices such as cell phones and tablets can sometimes have difficulty displaying course content.
  • Don't wait until after your certificate expires to look into refresher training. Once it expires, you can't take a refresher course.
  • Do research this course and make sure you fall under Part 46; below-ground miners and coal miners are usually under Part 48.
  • Don't hesitate to call or chat with Zack Academy for more information about this course!
