'PCN Tours' program features Marcellus Shale-related offerings

A “PCN Tours” video exploring the noncredit offerings of the Marcellus Shale Education & Training Center (MSETC), as well as Penn College’s degree programs pertaining to the natural gas industry, is available for viewing at http://www.msetc.org/ online. MSETC is a collaboration between Pennsylvania College of Technology and Penn State Cooperative Extension.

The program, which originally aired on the statewide cable channel in February, is narrated by Jeffrey F. Lorson, director of MSETC workforce training. In addition to the MSETC (and the electronics labs located within), the tour visited labs in Penn College’s School of Natural Resources Management and School of Industrial and Engineering Technologies for a look at heavy equipment/diesel and welding majors. The tour concluded with a visit to an Anadarko Petroleum drilling site in Lycoming County featuring a rig operated by Precision Drilling.
