Eagle Ford: Coastal Bend College to offer entry-level oil-field safety training
Coastal Bend College, in partnership with Petroleum Education Council Premier, will hold five-day Oil Patch Preparation Systems (OPPS) safety trainings this fall at the CBC Pleasanton site. The trainings are scheduled for Nov. 11-15 and Dec. 9-13.
OPPS is a five-day entry-level safety training and job-placement program that is designed to help students gain the skills needed to get started in oil and gas safety-related occupations in the Eagle Ford shale. Students enrolled in the safety training will receive hands-on training in addition to classroom instruction, and the training credential is transferrable.
The program is being customized to meet employer and industry demands in the Eagle Ford shale area. OPPS provides an oil and gas career starting point for entry-level workers, veterans, and other people who want to work in safety-related occupations.
Students will attend class from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. for five consecutive days at the CBC Pleasanton site located on 1411 Bensdale Road. The cost of the safety training is $600, and thanks to a generous donation from DCP Midstream, there are scholarships available to veterans that will help pay the entire training fee.
To register for the program or for more information, call Lillian Garza at 361-354-2331 or Katie Sherman at 830-569-4222, ext. 1203.
