It wouldn't matter if you had a PHD in well drilling technology, the MEXICANS will STILL land a job BEFORE you do!!!!

And as I said from day one "if you want wo work HERE in the well drilling industry MOVE TO TEXAS!!!!

Are you willing to travel around the country, work 12 + hours per day, 7 days per week, in all weather?

Are you willing to stay drug free and to have no social life?

Are you willing to work your ass off for a paycheck that you must spend on overpriced camper lots or motel rooms?

If so, this may be the class for you!

Because-Gov. James Earl Ray, aka "Boss Hogg" says so.

The best quality you can have in addition to training is willingness to be there and do the job...these people are successful...if you call off frequently or whine and so many dolts won't make it.

Re: Minuteman Environmental Services. With minuteman in their name, I am wondering if they've been investigated by the IRS.

Will this degree provide graduates with a strong back, an even stronger mind and the motivation to succeed? If not, then it is a waste of financial resources.

We cannot get proper testing of water and air yet our tax dollars are being spent to legitimize this activity.Raids today by several federal and state agencies on Minuteman Environmental Services offices in PA..waste water company! note the suggestion of patriotic and environmental service... that is pr in action. Watch your tax dollars go to promote the sickness and death epidemic from carcinogenic chemicals.

Yes the gas drillers from the west are being called to New York now. Left West Virginia citizens in the dust again with hopes of jobs. Good luck on this training. It is a who you know with pull situation. And this cracker in Charleston is fooling himself if he thinks he is going to beat Pa and Ohio out of his cracker plant. Face up, the oil/gas companies of the Midwest just came in and made the rich richer and left us all with a dream of prosper which only the elite will ever see. Thank your local politicians that sold you all out for cash never to be on the books to help no one but themselves.

Thats the key words- "PROPER TRAINING" Just a certificate of graduation means nothingm.Quite a few students put in an appearence, get their diploma and want a $75K job. On top of that are the instructors actually quallified to teach? Some I have known in this area make me make that statement.

If you take this course I hope you get certified, I took their NCCER pipefitters helpers course and all I got was a worthless certificate they printed up that no job will recognize.

Proper training, be able and willing to work and just as important. Stay away from the drugs. Todays blood tests can show it, if you smoked one joint in the last six months.
