ShaleNET: Building Capacity and Career Pathways for the Oil and Gas Industry

The ShaleNET US consortium will provide entry-level certifications and Talent Match System services to primary unconventional shale play regions in the U.S and add a series of credit-based stackable and latticed certificates and degree programs. The initiative will incorporate four primary components of oil and natural gas production and consumption: upstream, midstream, downstream, and instrumentation/electronics. Students across the multi-state network will have access to education related to the industry's high priority occupations and support services to complete programs and enter employment. To address advanced skill requirements, an innovative strategy will integrate new online curriculum into a blended instructional environment by designing, testing, and deploying online software to digitally control specific pieces of common industry equipment in a simulation environment for the targeted occupations.
