A major crewing and offshore oilrig management company quotes:
"We have hired a high number of former APTC students to fill various offshore oilrig positions. PCSL has found APTC graduates, to be very knowledgeable and understanding of their duties and safety, because if the high calibre of training we find, APTC students are able to perform their duties with little or no supervision. When we are in search of offshore oilrig employees to fill these positions, PCSL gives preference and prefers to hire graduate students for offshore employment for APTC oilrig program much more so than students form any other program that is now being offered anywhere in Atlantic Canada."
"APTC Floorhand Oilrig Training program is by far the best hands on oilrig skills training program now being offered anywhere in Canada for training oilrig raw recruits."
"APTC graduates work safely and have a tendency to stay with our organization and demonstrate higher level of competencies compared to recruits from other training programs."

The Atlantic Petroleum Training College in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, provides a hands-on experience that prepares potential employees for the Oil and Gas Industry. This program is a great "First step" towards learning the equipment and processes involved in working on a service rig. The program allows the participants to be prepared and contribute to the team more effectively, thus laying a foundation for a successful career.
Some of our current employees have attended the A.P.T. College and advanced to other positions on a service rig. Rockwell Servicing recognizes the value of this training and will continue to hire the graduates year after year.
