Editing or Updating MSHA Trainee Info

MSHA trainee no fines

Every trainee profile needs to be complete in order to get the most out of MSC’s automatic certificate features. You will need some information that is not standard on most paperwork, including:

  1. Each trainee’s full name as it appears on their birth certificate including full middle name (not just an initial) and any suffixes (Jr. etc.)
  2. Each trainee’s email address (if they have one)
  3. The address of the location where the majority of training will take place
  4. Is that location your office, their home or some other location?

It’s usually a good idea to get all this information together before you begin updating your trainee profiles.
