Pipeline job training to begin

Rocky Mount Telegram

The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is hiring. The Rocky Mount Telegram describes the partnership between Nash Community College and the ACP, offering training and job opportunities.

From the article:

The jobs offer an opportunity for great pay and good experience, said Johnika Alford, a recruiter for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

“It is hard work and it is outside work,” Alford said. “But we are paying top wages for good workers. This project has to happen, and it has a timeline.”

The jobs also come with benefits and a pension program, Marlowe said.

Workers from several North Carolina counties are being recruited as the pipeline that is now being built in Virginia is to be connected to the pipeline planned for North Carolina. The 600-mile pipeline will bring natural gas from West Virginia to Lumberton.

Wendy Marlowe said NCC will be helping to train workers needed for pipeline construction.

“The community liaison called us about developing a training curriculum for the pipeline workers,” Marlowe said. “We are working with other community college in developing a course that will offer OSHA 10 training for safety regulations as well as training in areas such as rigging, signaling, first aid, tool identification, flagging, shoring, trenching, asphalt paving and erosion control.”
