Last Day to Register for Free Training Class for Jobs in Natural Gas Industry
Today is the last day to register for those interested in enrolling in a free training class that will provide them with the skills they need to secure a job in the natural gas industry. The four-week ShaleNET training class will be held from August 6-24 at the former vo-tech school in Port Allegany. Recent increases in the price of natural gas at the wellhead make it likely that energy companies who have postponed shale-gas drilling in the local area will be returning in the coming months and looking to fill jobs with local recruits - if they have the basic qualifications. There is no tuition, but participants are responsible for pre-admission clearances, physical examinations, and drug testing. Registrations are still being taken through Pennsylvania CareerLink.
