30 CFR 48.3 contains the requirements for becoming a certified instructor and states in part:

Instructors shall be approved by the District Manager in one or more of the following ways:

(1) Instructors shall take an instructor’s training course conducted by the District Manager or given by persons designated by the District Manager to give such instruction; and instructors shall have satisfactorily completed a program of instruction approved by the Office of Educational Policy and Development, MSHA, in the subject matter to be taught.

(2) Instructors may be designated by MSHA as approved instructors to teach specific courses based on written evidence of the instructors’ qualifications and teaching experience.

(3) At the discretion of the District Manager, instructors may be designated by MSHA as approved instructors to teach specific courses based on the performance of the instructors while teaching classes monitored by MSHA. Operators shall indicate in the training plans submitted for approval whether they want to have instructors approved based on monitored performance. The District Manager shall consider such factors as the size of the mine, the number of employees, the mine safety record and remoteness from a training facility when determining whether instructor approval based on monitored performance is appropriate.

(4) On the effective date of this subpart A, cooperative instructors who have been designated by MSHA to teach MSHA approved courses and who have taught such courses within the 24 months prior to the effective date of this subpart shall be considered approved instructors for such courses.

(i) Instructors may have their approval revoked by MSHA for good cause which may include not teaching a course at least once every 24 months. Before any revocation is effective, the District Manager must send written reasons for revocation to the instructor and the instructor shall be given an opportunity to demonstrate or achieve compliance before the District Manager on the matter. A decision by the District Manager to revoke an instructor’s approval may be appealed by the instructor to the Administrator for Coal Mine Safety and Health or Administrator for Metal and Non-metal Safety and Health, as appropriate, MSHA, 1100 Wilson Boulevard Room 2424 (Coal) or Room 2436 (Metal and Nonmetal), Arlington, Virginia 22209-3939. Such an appeal shall be submitted to the Administrator within 5 days of notification of the District Manager’s decision. Upon revocation of an instructor’s approval, the District Manager shall immediately notify operators who use the instructor for training.

For Your Information

MSHA metal/nonmetal and coal standards require first aid training.

  • 30 CFR 56/57.18010 requires that persons capable of providing first aid be available on all shifts, and first aid training shall be made available to all interested miners.
  • 30 CFR 77.1703 requires that mine operators conduct first aid training courses for selected supervisory employees at the mine.
  • 30 CFR 75.1713 requires that selected agents of the operator shall be trained in first aid and first aid training shall be made available to all miners.

Things to consider when determining compliance:

  • Is a person present on each shift who has first aid training?
    • Is the person’s training up-to-date?
    • Is the person trained in patient assessment, CPR, controlling bleeding, and in treating shock, wounds burns, and musculoskeletal injuries?
  • Has first aid training been made available to all interested miners?
