At least 3 more local applicants needed to begin course, which practically guarantees job in natural gas industry
A free ShaleNET class is currently being offered, but organizers had to push the date back from the beginning of August to a tentative date of August 20, because of a lack of interest in the course.
Organizers say completion of the class practically guarantees a job. Virtually all of the individuals who completed the initial ShaleNET training course offered through PCEC earlier this year were offered jobs in the gas industry.
According to the State Unemployment Compensation Administration, more than 3,000 adults within Potter, McKean and Cameron Counties are “actively looking for work”, and collecting unemployment compensation while doing so.
A former ShaleNET student who spoke on condition of anonymity said he doesn’t understand the lack of interest and added, “Stop complaining about out-of-state workers and not having a job if you’re not going to do something about it. Right here is your chance.”
So, why the lack of interest? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below (please keep it clean).
