In this program, you will learn about heavy equipment and safety training in underground mining operations.

This hands-on program combines classroom training in Whitehorse, and two, two-week shifts of applied training through the University of Alaska at the Delta Mine Training Centre, a world-class training and research facility located in Delta Junction, Alaska. Courses at the Delta Junction facility include Muck Handling, Manual Drilling, Rigging and Staging, and Mine Utilities. 

The unique “two-week in/two-week out” program structure will expose you to what a work cycle at an operating mine actually feels like.
