In CAREERS' Oil and Gas Production Field Operator Program, offered in southeastern Alberta, students combine post-secondary theory courses at school and internship time. At the end of their training, they qualify for certification as production field operators.

CAREERS pre-screens students based on their academic records, attendance, application and attitude. We suggest possible matches, and the employer interview the students to choose the best fit for their company.

After the hiring process, the student will complete a summer internship of about six weeks at the job site.

Many of the youth in the program go on to become production field operators or pursue post-secondary education in petroleum technology, introducing much-needed younger employees to the industry.
