The Mining and Petroleum Training Service program has been named a subrecipient to the University of Utah in “Leveraging Decades of Arctic and Mine Training Experience to Assist Greenland,” a three-year project sponsored by the U.S. Department of State.
MAPTS will train students and staff from KTI Råstofskolen, Sisimiut, Greenland, at its mine training facility outside Delta Junction. Conversely, MAPTS staff will travel to Greenland to provide expertise on building and operating an underground mine training facility, developing curriculum, and training a local workforce for Greenland’s expanding minerals sector.
MAPTS was chosen as a subrecipient because of its results in operating a hands-on training facility and its success in developing a mining workforce indigenous to its arctic region.
