Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to begin oil worker training program
Posted: Tuesday, December 4, 2012
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
is training members to work in oil service fields.
The Tribal Employment Rights Office already offers a 10-day oil rig training program.
The last session had 24 graduates, The Bismarck Tribune reported.
“In order to enable them to get a foot in the door, so to speak, we put on these trainings,” Volney Fasthorse, the assistant director of the office, told the paper.
The tribe is now starting a heavy equipment operation training program. Rock, gravel and other materials generated during the program will be sold to provide funds for the effort.
