Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Natural Gas Field Technician program will not be offered in Fall 2020. This program will be offered in 2021.
The Natural Gas Field Technician Certificate program is offered in collaboration with Eversource Energy.
The natural gas industry is experiencing tremendous growth in meeting and serving the energy demands of homeowners, businesses, and municipalities across Connecticut. Expanding access to natural gas and accelerated replacement programs have driven a higher demand for skilled resources to construct, maintain, and service the natural gas infrastructure.
Middlesex Community College is partnering with Eversource Energy to deliver a program specifically designed to help develop the future workforce needed in this growing field.
Experienced natural gas industry instructors will teach classes at the Eversource training facility in nearby Berlin, Conn. Students will develop the fundamental skills required to safely and efficiently install and maintain gas distribution facilities, including the proper use of tools and equipment. They will also build a strong working knowledge of approved industry practices. Working in the natural gas industry is a physically demanding job encompassing a variety of physical tasks, including bending, twisting, lifting, digging, and carrying equipment.
As a selective admissions program, students must follow the application process and meet all deadlines.
Program Costs: $2,999 includes textbook, program materials, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Payment plan is available.
