Moe announces new oil and gas courses for Saskatchewan high schools

REGINA – Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe has announced new courses about the oil and gas industry will be developed for the province’s high school students.

The Saskatchewan Distance Learning Centre (Sask DLC) is entering into an agreement with Teine Energy to develop the courses, which will be online and consist of 50 hours of online theory and 50 hours of work placement, a release said.

“This partnership is a great example of innovation that will support our province’s growing economy while providing students the chance to explore the wealth of career opportunities available to them right here at home. These new courses at the 20 and 30 level will include work placement opportunities for students and will foster the development of a skilled workforce for our province,” Moe said.

Teine Energy is providing a total of $150,000 over two years to support development of the new online courses and co-ordination of student work placements, the release said.

“This program connects the energy industry with high school students as they begin to make career choices. Our goal for this program is to deliver real-world experience, accelerate local energy focused employment, and ultimately enable Saskatchewan grads to pursue well paid, fulfilling careers within their home province,” Teine Energy president and CEO Jason Denney said.

Oil and Gas 20 will be available to students starting in semester 2 of the 2024-25 school year, followed by Oil and Gas 30 starting in the 2025-26 school year, the release said.

The courses will be available to full-time online students and high school students attending local schools throughout Saskatchewan to supplement in-person learning.
