Part 48b Surface Annual Refresher 2024 (8 Hours)

This hybrid course is structured to meet the requirements of MSHA Part 48.28 Annual Refresher training. This course is intended for the experienced miner or mine contractor that has already completed New Miner training (24 hours). You will be required to send us your most recent MSHA 5000-23 certificate before a new one is issued to you. This course will be administered by a certified MSHA instructor. You are required to have a working webcam and microphone to take this course. Most laptops and notebooks already have this installed.

You instructor will assign some course work to be completed on your own. The course work includes training videos, presentations, lectures, handouts, exercises, and assignments. Your work will be evaluated using quizzes and your assignments will be graded by your instructor. Our Learning Management System (LMS) records every aspect of the training to ensure you complete all of the material in the course. After completion of this course work, you and your instructor will complete the course in an online virtual classroom using a webcam at a specific day and time. This session can usually be completed within two to three business days and are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, except major Federal holidays. During this virtual classroom session, your instructor will tailor the training to your job and the mine type you will be working at.

This training will be conducted in accordance with our Part 48 cooperative training plan. You are not required to have your own training plan unless you also work or visit a Part 46 mine site. If you work on Part 46 mine sites as well you will be required to have your own Part 48 training plan approved by MSHA. We can help you with this, just ask.

Will I Get a MSHA Certificate?

Upon completion of the online portion of the course a generic certificate will automatically be generated. This certificate is only to show completion of the online portion of the course. After the virtual classroom training is completed and your instructor verifies you have met all the requirements, he will email you a Part 48 training certificate (5000-23) signed by him.
