If you’re already working in Northern Saskatchewan’s mining industry, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Underground Mining Shaft Operations program can provide the training you need to advance into production jobs.
The program is industry driven, meaning it is delivered at northern mine sites by mining companies.
Underground Mining Shaft Operations is a 23-week certificate program offered off campus at northern mine sites in partnership with Northlands College.
The program will prepare you to work as a deck person, cage tender, skip tender and shaft inspector at underground mining operations. You’ll receive a certificate from Saskatchewan Polytechnic on successful completion of the program.
When you graduate, you’ll have the necessary training and skills to work in entry-level positions in hard rock underground service and development. You could work directly for a mining company or for a mining contractor.
