UAS Creates First University of Alaska Workforce Credential

"This new workforce credential enables Alaskans interested in mining careers to get the required entry level safety and mine orientation training that will make them more competitive candidates for jobs in the mining industry."

The University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) Center for Mine Training has created the University of Alaska’s first formal "Workforce Credential"—a non-credit credential focusing on Entry Level Production Miner training. Chancellor John Pugh approved the credential, which was developed in partnership with local mines and the UA’s Mining and Petroleum Training Service. This is the first such credential approved anywhere in the university system. "This new workforce credential enables Alaskans interested in mining careers to get the required entry level safety and mine orientation training that will make them more competitive candidates for jobs in the mining industry," said Mike Bell, Director of the UAS Center for Mine Training.
