All Training

Through the combined efforts of UMWA President Cecil Roberts and the WV Senatorial and Congressional delegation, The UMWA Career Centers Inc., in partnership with Workforce WV has secured funding through a National Dislocated Worker Grant (formerly known as Emergency Grant) from the US Department of Labor which will be used to assist coal miners who have been laid off beginning March 1, 2012, to obtain retraining in demand occupations.  A simple questionnaire must be completed by the interested applicant and signed by a Career Counselor before the individual can become a client of the UMWA Career Centers, Inc.  The form can be downloaded from this website and is located under the Services Tab in the Intake Process section. Some of our NDWG participants have completed training in the following areas:  CDL, LPN, Aircraft Structures, Heavy Equipment, Teacher re-certification, Medical Coding and Billing, Welding and numerous other programs with funds appropriated by this grant.

“The UMWA Career Centers Inc. has received a Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization “POWER” grant through the Appalachia Regional Commission (ARC).”  This grant enables the UMWACC to repurpose the facility and begin training for CDL, Cybersecurity and Advanced Manufacturing as early as Fall 2017.  “

There are training opportunities available through our Mining Technology and Training Center that are available for coal companies, contractors to the coal industry, government agencies that relate to the mining industry and for those in need of new miner training and annual refresher training. These training programs and other customized training opportunities are available at the MTTC.
