Online Classes Notice

We have expanded our online training/distance learning schedule to offer additional opportunities for your company to complete MSHA required training. Please see the schedule for our regularly scheduled classes. As always, our classes are taught by MSHA approved instructors and are live classes and completely interactive between the instructor and the participants. Participants may attend the class online from any location (home, office, hotel, etc) which eliminates the need to bring participants together for a class. The only requirement will be high-speed internet access. Our classes meet the requirements of Part 46, Part 48 A and Part 48 B. The cost for our online/virtual classes is $145 per person per day.

**As a reminder, we have the capability to set up virtual/online training classes for you and customize those as needed per your request. We can cover your company policies, new guidelines, changes at the mine and things of that nature as needed. If you are in need of these type of classes, please contact me and I will be happy to provide a customized training quote for you.

Task Training Series

ZZR has developed a series of task training videos with accompanying employee handbooks for specific tasks in the mining industry, which when used properly by a competent person will help a mining company meet the MSHA 30 CFR Part 46 requirements for task training. Each task training series gives the instructor the basic information needed to instruct the mine employee on a particular task and also gives information on other jobs that may be considered closely related to the task or that companies may consider part of the original task. The following is a partial list of the task training series:
  • Haul Truck Operator

The computer based training program is a self-paced interactive learning tool. It presents information and tests knowledge about a particular subject.
