With a one-time donation of $250,000, Nobel Energy became a funding partner in the West Virginia Community and Technical College System’s (WVCTCS) new Appalachian Petroleum Technology Training Center. The Center offers one-year certifications and two-year degrees in petroleum technology. The Appalachian Petroleum Technology Training Center is housed at Pierpont Community and Technical College and West Virginia Northern Community College. Both colleges will offer the new program.
Noble Energy’s investment will enable participating schools to purchase equipment for hands-on training; offer scholarships; and fund recruiting efforts to attract students from around the region. Noble Energy will offer internships to students enrolled in the program; provide field tours of operations and facilities; and offer employee expertise in the classroom.
The WVCTCS program is one of only 14 in the nation.
