Coal miners in a coal mine

Kentucky Coal Academy

As demand for coal workers continues to rise, the Kentucky Coal Academy (KCA) provides an open entry/exit training program to meet the workforce needs of the coal industry in Kentucky, across the United States and around the world.  Through short-term instruction for new miners and continued career training, KCA equips coal workers with the skills they need to be competitive and successful in the rapidly growing and changing coal industry.

KCA provides worker training through four of KCTCS’ community and technical colleges located in the eastern and western Kentucky coalfields.  To learn more about what KCA can do for you, visit one of our colleges or contact us today!
