NES Sure Flow is proud to be a Foundation and Capacity Building Partner in the Trades Exposure Centre project. The project is a collaborative partnership between the school division, industry, the Canadian Indigenous communities and the government.
The CAD$4 million facility currently consists of a service rig (Aurora #69) on a safe well, classroom space and scaffolding shop. The shop includes additional space for other trades-related programming to be offered in the future.
The Trades Exposure Centre will provide trades training opportunities to high school students from throughout Northern Lights. The first cohort of 10 students from Northern Lights completed their hands-on service rig training at the Centre in April, 2016. Students from high schools in other areas will also be able to access the locally developed courses Northern Lights has created (Driver’s Education, Energy 35 – Orientation to Service Rigs), as well as on-site training opportunities.
In addition to providing programming at the high school level, the Centre will also provide trades training opportunities to apprentices through a partnership with Tribal Chiefs Employment and Training Services Association, North East Alberta Apprenticeship Initiative and Trade Winds to Success Training Services.
The extensive training and support offered by NES Sure Flow allows students to make an informed decision about pursuing a career in the oil and gas industry.
