Ifeoma Nwosu graduated from the Oil and Gas Administrative Assistant program at Reeves College. As a mother of four, Ifeoma decided that she wanted to go to back to school despite how busy she would be while raising her children on her own. She created a strong work life balance by implementing a schedule in order to keep up with family life and school assignments. She remains a strong supporter of college education, sharing with us that she learned so much about life while in school that she would not have learned elsewhere.

Reeves College's insight:

All the little bits of information that we learned, movies we watched (or at least tried to watch), and learning how to find lease location. Our speakers who came in where so informational, being able to listen and ask questions to people directly related to the oil field industry was perfect. Going onsite was the perfect opportunity for us to get hands on experience that helps us understand exactly how things are run. Then, to end the three weeks with the amazing opportunity of being granted permission to the Upgrader, I am really excited for that field trip! I don’t think this course could have been better!!

 

With going through and learning WHMIS, PPE, H2S, TDG, Fatigue Manager, Labour Standards, WCB, and Weight Restrictions I Got a really good understanding about the importance of each within the Oil and Gas Industry. I have taken WHMIS before so that was a refresher. Learning about PPE was interesting, to learn all the different kinds of PPE and how different companies may request certain brands. I have never taken H2S and learned the extreme danger with it and how you need to make sure that you never get complacent with the danger of it. TDG (Transportation of Dangerous Goods) is a huge importance in the trucking aspect of Oil and Gas; it puts in safety measures for the individual hauling the goods as well as the everyday public. Fatigue Management was a little bit confusing with all the different rules with different shifts, and each province having a different expectation.  Labour Standards was actually pretty interesting to me to know what rules are out there specifically to help with the safety and fairness of employees and employers. WCB is good to have a slight idea of how it works and the rules to use it, and hopefully I will never have to use it for myself. Learning the weight restrictions of trucks will be something that I will have to re-look at when and if I ever need to use it but did take a few things away from it.  All of these small courses that we touched on, I will most likely have more questions and have to re-look at things as I get out into the work force. However, having an understanding to start out is perfect and will greatly benefit me. I am sure!

 

The speakers; Claude Heffner, Dean Olsen, and Rod Sheere, were a priceless opportunity in my eyes. Each of them had their specialty that they discussed with us, and having someone who works in he Oil and Gas field about their knowledge along with the opportunity for questions was greatly beneficial to me. Dean from CNRL discussed his safety job that he does on a daily basis. Now we all had somewhat of an understanding how huge the safety factor in the Oil and Gas industry, but seeing his binders of rules and regulations was definitely an eye opener. He definitely shared great information and was easy to listen to and understand. Claude’s drawing on the board of a battery was super, that drawing and explanation put my puzzle pieces of the Batteries that we learned in the courses so far into a full picture. The fact that Claude worked at getting us permission and tour guides to the Cactus Lake Battery was unquestionably one of the greatest experiences that we could ask for!!

 

I am very grateful for him to see how important it is for us, in a learning environment to get a firsthand look and experience like that!! Rod just like the other tow was a great benefit to the learning and understanding of a different aspect of the Oil and Gas Industry. Another drawing on the board, this time of the actually drill, again was like taking my puzzles pieces I have gained and putting them into a finished product. His drawing, explanation and willingness to answer all the questions we threw at him, was excellent.  Let’s also not forget about the goodies he brought for us!! My new agenda is being put to use and I put my cell phone sticky pad in my car to use! Each one of these three men, that I am grateful for, shared many of their own experience and knowledge. I just hope they understand how spectacular it was to have them take time out of their busy schedules to come and help us out.

 

Our field trip to Cactus Lake Battery was unquestionably my favorite so far! Even though we had touched on how batteries run, as well as Claude’s fantastic job explaining it, getting to go into the actual buildings and getting an explanation of each aspect from start to finish on how a battery runs was incomparable. I don’t fully understand all the filter and gadgets on how they separated and work to get the oil to where it needs to be, I am way farther ahead than I was before. I think the rest will come with time and experience out in the real working world.

 

This course was well executed and planned out in my opinion. Even though things were changed and added throughout, everything and everyday was beneficial and appreciated. The Oil and Gas Industry is huge and it is hard to understand it all, but this course has put me on a great path of understanding and has made me even more excited to venture out in the work force. A little nervous but excited non-the-less! I will succeed and do great, with the majority of the credit going to this fabulous class of broad knowledge of the Lloydminster Oil and Gas Industry!
