West Virginia Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training
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
as of August 7, 2001.
A downloadable ".PDF" version of the new regulations is available here. You will need to have Acrobat Reader installed on your PC in order to view these files.
