There’s month long training that’s taking place in Armstrong and Greene counties for pipeline related jobs!

 The course is called the Natural Gas Utility and Pipeline Fuels Training Program. It’s being offered by Armstrong County, the Gas Technology Institute and the United Mine Workers of America and the course usually valued at $3,500, is free and will take place at Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Northpointe Technology Center in South Buffalo

The jobs are in the natural gas pipeline field, involving construction, repair and maintenance. The nice thing about these jobs is that such positions are more stable than those involving drilling wells, which require the worker to move on from site to site, often moving substantial distances from job to job. The course concludes with a Job fair that is attended by the region’s large natural gas companies and others. In fact, the program was designed in collaboration with gas utility companies and contractors.
