Training and Development

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.
