Increase Job Training Resources for Gas Line Workers

The Division coordinates with partners to develop comprehensive training plans that increase job training resources. The gas pipeline strategic training plan’s purpose is to bring Alaska into a new era of collaboration and innovation among educators and training providers, combined with strategic investments in connected, regionally delivered and accredited programs to create world-class training and educational systems for Alaska.

The Plan identifies four broad strategies to prepare Alaskans for 113 occupations necessary for gas line construction, operation and maintenance:

  1. Increase awareness of and access to career opportunities in natural resource development
  2. Develop a comprehensive, integrated career and technical education system that aligns training institutions and coordinates program delivery
  3. Increase opportunities for registered apprenticeship in skilled occupations and expand other structured training opportunities
  4. Increase opportunities for development of appropriate training programs for operations, technical, and management workers

Updates to the gas pipeline progress and strategic training plan can be found on the Governorís AGIA web site.

Using the plan, the Division directed a variety of training resources in support of occupations related to construction of a gas pipeline:

All of these efforts are supported through Division resources and developed in partnerships with business and industry.
