NTIS: PB/80-164742 :145 pages
In response to anticipated increases in the demand for coal and the corresponding need for a rapidly expanding mining work force, this report provides an assessment of the current and future training needs of the coal mining industry generated by that work force. Using Department of Energy forecasts and an employment-turnover model (developed under a previous Bureau of Mines contract), estimates of the existing and future number of training incidences are presented. The existing supply of training is explored, and the primary sources of training are identified (for example, coal companies, schools, government, etc.). By matching the existing training supply with the anticipated demand, recommendations for ensuring adequate levels of training for the future coal mine work force are made.
