“At Trican, we create success
through the collective strength
of our employees”\
Whether in Trican’s technical and business units or its field operations,
employees at Trican are well prepared for their roles and have ample opportunities
for advancement, with many career path options. Training is seen as an integral
part of this advancement. Trican has dedicated training facilities and committed
staff that trains hundreds of employees each year in everything from new employee
orientation, basic oilfield calculations, coiled tubing hydraulics, to advanced
cementing and stimulation methods.
In addition to Trican’s in-house training, the company has a scholarship program
in place for those wishing to obtain a Petroleum Technology diploma or Engineering
degree. The program is open to anyone who has been with Trican for a minimum of
three years. This program encourages our employees to further their education and
it also provides Trican with a well-trained technical group.
