Are you struggling to figure out your next step? Or searching for a high-demand field with a variety of career paths? If so, here’s three reasons why Moraine Park’s gas utility construction and service program may be the right choice for you:

  • HIGH DEMAND! Natural gas and underground construction workers are in short supply. Recent surveys confirm that pipeline and gas distribution contractors are having trouble finding qualified and skilled labor. Without question, the construction industry’s ability to shift into overdrive is being held back by the lack of quality candidates ready to fill these available positions. This labor shortage is being felt across the country, leading to construction delays and additional cost.
  • REWARDS AND SATISFACTION: Men and women working in the natural gas construction industry are tested physically and mentally each day. Rather than sitting at a desk, they wear rugged clothing and work boots, work in a variety of weather conditions and earn great pay and benefits. Plus, almost all will tell you they leave the work-site each day with a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment.
  • ​MODERN, CUTTING-EDGE TRAINING: Gas students will have access to Moraine Park’s new built, $2.3 million Energy Education Center, state-of-the-art tools and equipment, and newly purchased heavy machinery.

High demand jobs, convenient and modern learning tools and having a life away from an office desk? Now we’re talking! So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
