The OSMRE training program ensures that the most current and valid scientific information and technologies are available to the coal industry, State and Tribal staff, and OSMRE employees who implement SMCRA requirements.

The training on OSMRE technologies -- from the Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) program to Acid Mine Drainage technologies to underground mapping and geospatial data to computer software and engineering -- result in better mining and reclamation practices. The application of these technologies leads to higher quality environmental protection and fewer off-site impacts.
