The Mission of the UAS/CMT is to provide world-class workforce training in occupational fields leading to employment in the mining industry, with a special emphasis on expanding an Alaskan workforce for underground hard rock mining.
We offer classes and training for people looking for work in the mining industry as well as upgrade training for those already employed in the mining industry.
