This report describes the development of the instructional design and content of a training program for shaft construction miners and supervisers. The recommended training approach is based on the results of needs, tasks, and competency analyses of jobs performed by conventional shaft sinking and raise drill personnel. The training is directed toward improving the safety and efficiency of constructing shafts by new hired and experienced miners and supervisors. A self-paced, self-teaching, modular approach to training, using criterion-referenced tests was proposed. Training requirements for conventional shaft sinking and raise drilling were described. Training program content was detailed in the form of module and lesson design approaches. The report also recommends a method for developing, implementing, and validating the training program.
