This report describes a project in which three structured underground coal mine equipment operator training programs were developed. The project was carried out in two parts. In the first part, a study was conducted to determine how on-the-job training is currently conducted in industry, determine the overall effectiveness of current on-the-job training, and the possible application of the principles of the social learning theory to on-the-job training. In the second part, three on-the-job training programs were developed for shuttle car, roof bolter, and continuous miner operations. These programs were structured to eliminate the shortcomings of current industrial on-the-job training identified in the study and incorporated the application of relevant principles of the social learning theory. The programs are prototypes that underground coal mine training personnel can use as models to develop their own customized equipment operator training programs.
