MCC OFFERS ONLINE MINING CLASSES
In an effort to make mining classes more accessible, Madisonville Community College
(MCC) is offering two online mining classes in the upcoming spring semester. MNG
102 - Introduction to Mining Engineering will provide an orientation to the mining
engineering and mining technology professions. The course includes introduction to
key mining engineering activities and functions, mining methods and equipment, and
health and safety subsystems. MNG 286 - Roof Control and Ventilation involves an
in-depth study of roof and rib control, and coal mine ventilation. This course includes
methods of inspection and reporting potential safety hazards, reading roof control
plans, processes and procedures involving mine resistance, law, and minimum standards
Each three credit hour online course will be taught by MCC mining instructor Bart
Allen and no textbooks are required. I am particularly pleased that we have constructed
these classes so that they are challenging without requiring the purchase of a textbook.
Taking into account the rising costs of going to college, students can work on the
classes at their convenience and at minimal cost, shared Allen. The courses use
online resources in the public domain.
Classes begin January 13, 2014. All students are encouraged to apply for admission
and register for classes before December 1st to avoid the late registration rush.
Financial aid is available to those who qualify and students should complete the FAFSA
(Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as possible to avoid delays in
