mcc3 300HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (11/30/13) - 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 processing aid.
 
For more information, contact MCC’s Enrollment Center at 270-824-8621.
