Each mine operator or contractor must have a written training plan under Part 46 - Miners Engaged in Shell Dredging or Employed at Sand, Gravel, Surface Stone, Surface Clay, Colloidal Phosphate, or Surface Limestone Mines. We will write a plan for you and review the steps you must take to implement it and keep it current.
How It Works
You can purchase a custom training plan by clicking the Enroll Now button and completing the registration process and providing payment. You'll then login to Eduwhere and click the MSHA Part 46 Training Plan link. We'll ask you a few questions about your operations and then Randy Newcomer (our MSHA guru) will create a training plan just for you.
We'll ask you for some basic information, including:
MSHA Contractor ID#
Person responsible for signing certificates

The course fee entitles a single user to participate in the online course for at least six (6) months. Requests for additional time will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but are almost always honored. Hardcopy certificates are mailed (first class for domestic locations/standard airmail for international locations) and included in the course fee. Expedited shipping costs are additional.
