From small villages to the largest cities, Alaska has processing plants all over the state.
Cari-Ann Ketterling with the Alaska Process Industry Careers Consortium (APICC) and Zarin Taylor, a former production operator at BP, joined Daybreak Wednesday to talk about jobs in the process technology field. Whether you’re working at an electric company or and oil production facility, Taylor said the job is similar no matter where you go.
“We’re controlling the process, we’re controlling the work that supports the process,” Taylor said. “We’re starting the equipment and putting a real emphasis on safety and quality control for our product with everything we do.”
Process tech graduates can earn an average of six figures per year after five years of experience.
