Natural Resources Energy

The first year 11th grade level student will be introduced to basic oil and gas processing through lectures and projects that start to familiarize the student with fieldwork. A strong approach to equipment construction and operation with repair will help students acquire skill sets that are in demand for future employment. The second year 12-grade level portion of the Oil and Gas program is designed to gain insightful knowledge into petroleum processing streams. The student will also learn from a hands-on approach using tools and equipment that develop the potential energy sites. Students will also be educated in business writing for fieldwork and employment, also gaining skills in business operations and entrepreneurships.
