TrainND Program Capital Campaign

Posted: Updated:

A $300,000 funding boost was received by the TrainND program in Williston this month.

Statoil and Steel Energy Services each pledged $150,000 over the next three years in commitment to the $7.5 million TrainND capital campaign.

TrainND is now within $500,000 in the effort to build a state of the art regional workforce training and education center in Williston.

TrainND is designed to evolve with the needs of a community --- workforce training can change from nursing to driving to administration.

Currently in Williston, there is a shift in the need for well control training and service for existing wells.

Statoil Regional Manager Russell Rankin says that TrainND already has some of the best training equipment around.

He says a financial commitment to help the program grow will ensure that safety will be the focal point, not only for Statoil employees but also for the companies cooperating in the region.

(Russell Rankin, Statoil Regional Manager) "This not only serves the needs of a safer working environment but also for a legacy for the community and opportunities that it presents for the future."

Rankin says the upgrade will not only provide more training and classroom space for the more than 10,000 students that go through the program every year, but it will also give TrainND a look of an educational institution.

TrainND will be breaking ground on the new facility this month.

A TrainND MINOT location will have a grand opening on Thursday, May 8th.
