Oil Rig Job Training
The oil industry is by far one of the most successful industries in the world. There is a constant demand for oil (and natural gas) and for workers in the oil fields all over the world - onshore and offshore.
Jobs are available in nearly every part of the globe - Alaska, Texas, Brazil, North Dakota, Canada, the North Sea, the Middle East, the African Coast, Japan, and anywhere else there is oil.
Oil prices are booming along with employment opportunities. Because there are fewer workers than available jobs, pay is relatively high and there's job security in the oil industry. Now is the time to get started on your job search.
Entry-level jobs may pay $50,000 to $75,000 a year, and there's a pretty clear oil rig career ladder. Pay increases as one moves from roughneck or floor hand to driller and rig supervisor.
The potential is incredible.
By no means is oil work like the typical cubicle job; instead it is physical work around heavy equipment in remote locations both onshore and offshore. It's a job that keeps you on your toes. You'll be in the elements in cool places all the time.
Enroll in a Training Program
The best way to get a job on an oil rig, where you can make upwards of $25 an hour your first day on the job, is to participate in a professional oil rig training course. Nothing compares to oil rig training for gaining both knowledge and practical experience that will prepare you for an awesome job and career. Oil rig training takes advantage of both classroom and field training to introduce you to oil rig equipment and to teach you the specialized skills that you will use as an entry level oil rig worker - like that of an roughneck or roustabout.
Good training programs send a high percentage of their graduates directly into the work force all over the world. All major companies are eager to hire well-trained workers, rather than someone without any experience. By getting the proper training you will be working in one of the world's biggest industries as soon as you graduate. That could even be within a month of this very minute.
Even when the rest of the economy is struggling, the oil industry is charging ahead at full steam. The major drilling, exploration and production companies are aggressively recruiting energetic, hard workers that are ready for an adventurous career.
