January 12, 2018

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology is launching a two-year Foundation Drill Rig Operator program that is the first of its kind in North America, according to Global News. “The training program is connected to an institution that’s put some rigour around the curriculum,” said NAIT Associate Vice-President of Continuing Education and Workforce Development Brian Pardell. “The outcomes of the program really lead towards workers that will be safe, that will be validated by industry in terms of their skill set.” The program provides drill rig operators with formal training through an online curriculum and on-the-job experience. Global News
