A rig deckhand class for students needing a rig pass certification for potential employment in the gas drilling industry will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday, Feb. 13-16, at the New Martinsville campus of West Virginia Northern Community College.

Larry Tackett, New Martinsville campus dean, said the class is free but students must pay for their own drug test (approximately $25, locally) and submit the results when registering.
