Global Training Incorporated held an open house at their Pincher Creek office on May 27.  Their focus is employment services and training towards a position in the oil and gas industry.  Representatives from Global Training offices from Pincher Creek, Cardston and Lethbridge were on hand to tell people more about what options Global Training offers throughout southwestern Alberta.

"I enjoy what I do," said Safety Coordinator and Instructor Tanis French.  She explained that the company works with people who have come into the office on their own or who have been referred to them by Alberta Human Services.  "The people who come to us are often unemployed, or underemployed," said French.  "We offer professional help with resumes, career planning, and job search assistance."  Once a person has gone through training, the company continues to do follow up for six months to assist them in obtaining, and retaining a job.

Whether going into the job force for the first time, or transitioning from one career path to another Global may be able to assist in a variety of ways.  "In the oil and gas sector, you need a minimum of two safety tickets to get a job, we offer training in nine different safety tickets."

"There's always funding available," said French when asked about the cost of the training programs.  "That's the first step.  Come in, and see if you qualify."  To contact Global Training's Pincher Creek office call 403-627-1874.
