Convergence Training Updates MSHA Compliance Course Catalog


online-courses-for-MSHA-46If you’ve worked at a surface mine, or performed work in an MSHA-regulated site, there’s a good chance you’ve seen our MSHA Surface Miner Training. Back in 2008 Convergence Training developed the original library of MSHA Part 46-compliant mine safety courses. And since then, our courses have been used in hundreds of MSHA training programs all across North America and viewed by thousands of mine employees and contractors.

Well, 8 years is a long time. And for experienced miners viewing our training year-in and year-out as part of their annual refresher training, 8 years is a very long time. We know it’s important for training to be fresh for it to be engaging and effective, and that’s why we’re continually making updates to our training catalog. So last year, we started to give our MSHA library the makeover treatment.

Available in Q3 2016, our completely updated MSHA library consists of over 14 hours of training for use in MSHA New Miner and Annual Refresher programs. We’ve added 6 new courses to our MSHA-compliant library and completely rebuilt our original courses, adding new information illustrated with brand new 3D models and visual graphics.
