Welcome to the TIPS Training Program
The TIPS Training Program is a collaborative effort between OSMRE, the States, and Tribes. Staff in these agencies that are funded under SMCRA are eligible to participate. TIPS training instructors are reclamation experts who use TIPS software to solve a wide range of complex permitting and abandoned mine land problems.
Every year the TIPS Training Program educates hundreds of students in the use of state-of-the-art scientific and engineering tools. TIPS provides specialized training for off-the shelf applications tailored to SMCRA responsibilities. The training provided can be found nowhere else and is considered a “one of a kind” opportunity. SMCRA application of those tools represents the most requested and widely supported component of the TIPS program.
TIPS Training provides numerous opportunities for students to increase their knowledge and skills. Please see NTTP & TIPS Training Catalog for the Course Descriptions.
