Professional competence formation in experience-oriented physical training and sports activities of mining engineers

The experience-oriented special physical training in the Mining Art course on process safety and mine rescue work is the first-order condition in training of specialists in industrial safety. Formation of professional competences of a mine rescuer is inextricably connected with practical physical training. It is emphasized that professional competence formation is directly related with the quality of physical training of a graduate to develop endurance, power and agility of a future mine rescuer. Mining personnel training provides a solid theoretical framework and practical training at training facilities of mine rescue brigades and mining companies. Training in a mock mine or on a testing ground allows students to develop skills aimed at accomplishment of major search-and-rescue missions, which requires mobilization of the whole mental and physiological potential of a human body. The article gives an example of a practical training timetable at the training and teaching facilities of the Pechora Basin Mine Rescue Brigade’s division in Vorkuta in the Republic of Komi.

Keywords: training process, physical characteristics, mock mine, mining, mining engineer, industrial safety, mine rescue brigade, training practice, production practice.
