Pennsylvania experiencing a high demand for professionals with welding, HVAC and electronics skills for the Oil and Gas energy industry
“We're doing everything we can to help accelerate PTI programs. Our company and the entire shale gas industry needs instrument technicians trained on today’s technology. Having access to PTI grads will enable us to deliver more and differentiated value to our customers,” said Jim Neville, vice president, Equipment and Controls Inc.
The Energy Technology Center at PTI was designed by Felix A. Cardella, III, of TKA Architects. The general contractor for the $3.5 million project was Franjo Construction. The building construction project is made possible in part by a $750,000 grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) designed for the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic and historical improvement projects.
