The Southwest Energy Institute offered short courses from September 14-16

LIBERAL, KEN: The Southwest Energy Institute will host a trade and industry collapse at Seward County Community College on September 14-16. Registration for physical education covering special topics in the oil and gas business is now open.

For more than 40 years, SEI has improved from a gas compression plant and its partners, metering and pipeline facilities. This rigorous, efficient facility provides job training to workers in all sectors of the energy industry. It also reflects a deep-rooted sense of mission. In a region full of oil and gas resources, jobs and processing facilities, a healthy energy industry means a healthy regional economy.

Despite political, climate change, and economic crises, ordinary people drive their cars, adjust the thermostat on the stove during the coldest winter, and take a hot shower.

“This is definitely a personal impact on energy trade,” said Norma Jean Dodge, director of BA and I. “We know that the industry partners in our service area will continue to look for workers. The huge retirement spree began many years ago, and it is challenging to meet those manpower needs.

SEI offers a variety of technical sessions and offers hands-on training from industry professionals. The courses are designed to be effective and immediate.

“Many of our participants report that they have returned to work and immediately applied the new training,” says Dodge. The teachers we bring are great in their field and are of great value to the students’ time investment.

When some employers send employees to the classroom as career development benefits, participants can enroll individually for SEI courses.

Classes for the SEI fall session include:
