Penn State DuBois to Hold Gas Industry Training in February

Penn State DuBois to Hold Gas Industry Training in February

DuBOIS – Penn State DuBois will offer the ShaleNET Floor Hand Training Class again this February to meet the Natural Gas Industry's demand of skilled workers in entry-level jobs.

Individuals interested in the class should attend one of two information sessions scheduled for 5:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 8; and 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 9, in Room 209 of the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. The information sessions will cover the details of the training program, review the job demands and expectations of floor hands, and complete the registration process for the full class in February.

This is the second Floor Hand Training Class to be offered at the campus. All graduates of the first class, held last February, were placed in jobs shortly after completing the program.

Penn State DuBois has partnered with several organizations connected to the Natural Gas Industry to offer training that will prepare individuals for careers in the Marcellus Shale boom at very little cost. The Floor Hand Training Program provides all of the training and certifications the students in the program need to enter the workforce on a gas well drilling site as a floor hand. All costs for this class and the ShaleNET program are covered by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.

Floor hands operate and maintain drilling systems and pumps by connecting and disconnecting pipes, inspecting derricks, cleaning and oiling derricks, and performing other general maintenance tasks around the rig.

Military veterans returning from active service and dislocated workers interested in Shale Industry jobs are encouraged to attend the information session.

This training program is a product of the collaboration between the Shale Training and Education Center (ShaleTEC) at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, ShaleNet, the North Central Workforce Investment Board, Superior Energy Resources, Pennsylvania CareerLink, and Penn State DuBois.

Once the training program is completed, the graduates will also have the opportunity to attend a job fair at Penn State DuBois that will help them land a job right away.

According to ShaleNET, the Marcellus Shale deposit will yield decades of gas production. The drilling of a single well requires 400 people working in nearly 150 occupations.

Class size is limited to a total number of 17 students. To reserve your seat for either information session, log on to www.dubois.psu.edu or call 814-375-4772.
