People interested in working the Bakken oil fields of eastern Montana should attend a new class offered by the Bitterroot College of The University of Montana in Hamilton.
“Bakken Oil and Gas Field Basics” will be offered from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, July 13, or Friday, July 20. The one-day Bitterroot College UM course costs $55 for those registering by July 6 and $65 for those registering thereafter. It will be held in Classroom 1 at 274 Old Corvallis Road in Hamilton.
Call 406-375-0100 or visit http://www2.umt.edu/bcp/documents/BCPContEd-Registration.pdf to enroll.
The BC course is perfect for those wishing to start an oil industry career or simply learn about the current Bakken oil and gas boom. The class offers essential oil-patch terminology, as well as the fundamentals of oil and gas geology.
The course was developed by Plains Energy Technical Resources and originally was offered at Dawson Community College to workers in Glendive. It’s a must for anyone interested in working in eastern Montana or western North Dakota. George Furniss, an adjunct geosciences instructor, will teach the class.
