    Training offered for Alberta oilfields - CBC Prince Edward Island
    The P.E.I. carpenters union, with the support of the federal government, is offering a month-long training course for Islanders looking to work in the oilfields in Alberta.

    Human Resources Development Canada is covering 80 per cent of the cost of the $1600 course for most of the students. Paul Chiasson, field representative with local 1338 carpenter's union, says by the end of the course the 30 men will be second-year scaffolding apprentices . This position has a wage of about $30 an hour and includes food and lodging.
