Rig Deckhand Class Announced at NM Campus

Posted 02/06/12

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.

Call the campus at 304-455-4684 for details and information on where to get the drug test and how to register. Tackett pointed out this class includes a visit to a working gas rig.
