Service Rig Safety and Floor Hand Experience Special Project

Project Description

Service Rig Safety and Floor Hand Experience Special Project is a two-credit, 30 level project.  The project is designed to be the practical component that follows the completion of the Locally Developed Course Energy Education – Orientation to Service Rigs 35-5, available through the Alberta Distance Learning Centre (ADLC).

As part of the special project students will acquire certification in the following Industry recognized safety courses:  eGSO (Enform –Electronic General Safety Orientation), First Aid with CPR, WHMIS 2015, Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG).  Along with Energy Education 35-5, and HCS3000, these safety certifications will serve as prerequisites to a five-day training course during which students will acquire two additional safety certifications in H2S Alive and Fall Protection, as well as three days of hands-on service rig training as a service rig floorhand.  This practical training will take place at the Northern Lights Trades Exposure Centre in Bonnyville, Alberta.

Engaging students through experiential learning will allow for a deeper understanding of the role and duties of a service rig floor hand, and provide a better knowledge and skill base that could help lead to employment in the oil and gas industry.
