WHY ENROLL IN OUR PETROLEUM & NATURAL GAS CERTIFICATE PROGRAM?

The petroleum and natural gas industries are known for being highly technical. They require only the most highly skilled mechanics to work on serving and maintaining the equipment, oversee gas distribution, and more.

For that reason, these industries tend to pay higher than one might expect. Petroleum mechanics, for instance, stand to make an average of almost $58,000 a year, while petroleum engineers can make up to more than $137,000 a year.

These industries have historically performed strongly and are still always in need of qualified workers.
