New 1 year Petroleum Production Ops Technician Skill Set Certification

In response to Halliburton’s request for a 1 yr Petro Production Ops Certification that satisfied their entry level production tech needs, Dr. Galiotos, Houston Community College Energy Institute, developed a 1 year hands-on skill set certification program that we are now also asking the rest of the Petroleum Industry to provide commentary on. Is the program below relevant to your needs also? Those within the HR and Recruitment Oil & Gas Industry, we are also asking if HCC students graduate with this entry level hands-on certication would they meet your field operational and production tech requirements as well? Forward your name and contact info to me discuss in greater detail. You can also call me direct at 281-815-3979.
