Calgary, AB – January 25, 2016 – Students at CDI College’s Calgary City Centre campus will have a significant advantage in the job market after graduation, thanks to a generous donation of over $150,000 in classroom and computer lab equipment from Amec Foster Wheeler, a British multinational agency that specializes in consultancy, engineering, and project management in the oil and gas industry.
Amec Foster Wheeler has extended a kind gesture to show encouragement towards the next generation by supporting CDI College in its mission to continually provide a more advanced learning environment to its students.
CDI College’s programs – whether in business, technology, or others – incorporate hands-on training in simulated lab settings, which are meticulously designed to mimic real work environments. Students who enroll in programs such as the Oil and Gas Administration program will have the opportunity to utilize these labs and train using the latest industry-standard software and tools.
As part of their training, students will be able to enhance and hone their skills through practicum placements, which are included in several of CDI College’s programs, gaining invaluable work experience in the process.
Thanks to Amec Foster Wheeler’s contribution to educational development, CDI College’s Oil and Gas Administration students – and future employees in the industry – will be armed with the training, tools, knowledge, and skills required to further their goals individually and as a company.
As a token of appreciation, CDI College’s Calgary City Centre campus has dedicated its Oil and Gas Administration classroom, sponsored by Amec Foster Wheeler.
As a leading career training institution for over 40 years, CDI College’s Alberta campuses are recognized within region for developing skilled administrative assistants from the Oil and Gas Administration program. Taught by experienced industry professionals, the diploma program includes on-the-job training through practicum placements so students can gain the real-world experience, giving them a leg up when it comes to the job market.
