MSHA TRAM Conference Presentation on Current and Future Training Technologies











At the upcoming 2017 MSHA TRAM conference this year (October 10-12, National Mine and Health Safety Academy, Beaver, WV), we’ll be giving two presentations: one on Evaluating Online Safety Training Solutions for Mining, and a second on Current and Future Training Technologies.

This blog post supports the presentation on Current and Future Training Technologies for Mining. It includes some additional helpful information that may help you learn about this brave new frontier.

We have a similar supporting blog post for the presentation on Evaluating Online Safety Training Solutions as well. You’ll see there’s some cross-over between the two presentations.

In addition, some of these links may help too:

Also, if you’re not familiar with MSHA Part 46, you may also want to check out this second webinar, which covers a lot of the high-level, important aspects of the regulation, and in particular addresses New Miner training and Annual Refresher training.

If you’ve got any questions about MSHA Part 46 Training, let us know by shooting us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
