RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE STANDARDS

FOR CERTIFICATION OF COAL MINE ELECTRICIANS

MSHA will no longer recognize the West Virginia low-medium voltage electrical certification. The West Virginia Board of Miner Training, Education and Certification, has approved the new 18 hour training program made available for those who need additional hours to upgrade their card, or for future electrical examinations.   The changes were made to the regulations regarding the electrical certifications and filed with the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office. The changes that were made have been filed as an Emergency Rule, which is effective as of August 7, 2001.  

A downloadable ".PDF"  version of the new regulations is available here. You will need to have Acrobat Reader  adobe logo installed on your PC in order to view these files.
