INA, Ill. – Attention all drill rig workers, little more than two weeks stand between you and the next SafeLand training course at Rend Lake College, which is set for 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 23 at the Coal Mine Training Center. The training course will cover materials required for PEC certification.
Don McBride, RLC Mining Technology Instructor, is a PEC certified instructor, and will teach course curriculum designed to give students information on safety issues, including rigging, fall protection, hazmat, emergency response, welding safety, fire protection and more.
The first SafeLand training was offered at RLC in 2013 in connection with PEC Safety of Mandeville, La. The instructional class is open to anyone in the drilling industry.
“RLC began this program in anticipation of the fracking activity we hoped would come to Southern Illinois, and many of the large oil producers, such as Shell and Exxon, require their rig workers to have PEC certification before allowing them to work on the drill sites,” said McBride.
To register for the class, contact Kacie Hunter at 618-437-5321, Ext. 2373, or email email@example.com. The cost of the class is $95 and individuals must pre-register.
