Every year the last day of the month you took the class.
Example: If you took the class June 3rd 2020, it expires June 30th 2021.
No, if you are still working for the same company when you took the New Miner class, you have up to 36 months in which to complete the 8 Hour class. However, you will not be allowed on a mine with an expired 5000-23.
Once you have taken the 8-Hour Annual Refresher class you are considered to be an experienced miner for life, providing you are still working for the same company. You could let it expire up to 5 years and still qualify for the 8-Hour class. However, instead of marking Annual Refresher, we would mark the Experienced Miner box. This would show the mines and MSHA that you have been away from the mining industry for a time.
To stay current and be allowed on mine property you will need to take the 8-Hour Refresher every year.
We recommend that you always keep a copy of previous MSHA 5000-23 certificates. Some mines have requested that you show previous 5000-23 certificates.
It would be best in doing due diligence that your new employer put you in the 3 Day New Miner class so they can start you out knowing that proper training is received and documented.
