Great Lakes Truck Driving School Adds Oil and Gas Industry Training



Great Lakes Truck Driving School added an oil field safety certification course.

This course was developed to meet the anticipated demand of workers due to the Marcellus and Utica Shale exploration. The school has already located 10 drilling contractors that are seeking to immediately fill more than 4,000 positions with a starting annual pay between $50,000 and $65,000. These companies have indicated a need for CDL drivers and heavy equipment operators with a preference for the credentials offered in the course.

The course, scheduled to begin Feb. 27, also includes certifications in OSHA, First Aid, and Rigging.

Located in Lorain County, Ohio, Great Lakes Truck Driving School offers professional driving, heavy equipment operation, and oil gas industry training at one location.

The school received full accreditation from the International Association of Drilling Contractors to provide graduates with a Health, Safety, and Environmental RIG PASS Card and SafeLandUSA Endorsement.

“Much of our school’s success has come from understanding where the demand is for jobs and how our graduates can get those jobs,” says Doris Young, the school’s owner. “The oil and gas industry is one of those areas, as this is an industry that will be supplying jobs to our state for many years to come.”

For more information on the Oil Field Safety Certification Course call 866-932-3436.
