Short-term roustabout training scheduled at Penn College

Openings remain for a 15-day ready-to-work field service worker and roustabout training program offered through Workforce Development & Continuing Education at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The short-term, full-time training — which will run from Nov. 14 to Dec. 6 — will prepare participants to work in the following industry sectors: energy, construction, warehousing/logistics and manufacturing. Students will experience classroom and hands-on learning by instructors with real-world work experience.

To be considered for training, potential registrants must have a valid driver’s license and have obtained the minimum of a high school diploma/GED. Pre-training screenings in the form of drug and medical testing, review of driving records and criminal background checks will be conducted.

Tuition assistance may be available and training is delivered by Penn College through its award-winning ShaleNET partnership.
