PPS recognized for collaborative partnership that is putting job seekers to work

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. – The Continuing Education Program in New York State (CEANY) recently presented Precision Pipeline Solutions (“PPS”) with an award for their New Construction Gas Operator Training Program.  PPS was recognized by CEANY for outstanding collaboration with a business/organization that has yielded continuing education services or training.  To date the New Construction Gas Operator Training program has helped PPS successfully onboard over 58 qualified workers.

“SUNY Orange has become a catalyst to putting many veterans, unemployed and underemployed job seekers to work at steady well-paying jobs,” said Jon Selander, President of Precision Pipeline Solutions. “The collaborative partnership between Precision Pipeline Solutions and SUNY Orange has resulted in qualified individuals supporting PPS’s growth and becoming PPS’s leaders of tomorrow.  I am very proud of the leadership Erin Livesey and Ed Kleinke provided to get this accomplished.”

The New Construction Gas Operator Training Program with CEANY started in November of 2014.  Program participants gain technical and hands-on experience while performing job-related tasks specific to the Natural Gas industry.  Program participants have the opportunity to earn over 20 Northeast Gas Association (“NGA”) operator qualifications prior to employment.  Without this training it would take an employee several years to acquire the same number of NGA qualifications.

In addition to the program promotion and enrollment, the PPS team collaborated to develop the NGA task based curriculum, hands-on training activities and the time requirements for the classroom and training.  PPS provided training space, the tooling, equipment and materials while preparing the training materials and study guides.  The PPS team also facilitated the testing process.

Precision looks forward to continuing this program along with other training initiatives that continue to strengthen the depth of talent at PPS.  It’s initiatives like the New Construction Gas Operator Training Program that continue to represent the values of Safety, Quality and Trust that PPS is widely known for.
