Tidewater Community College representatives will travel to Abingdon in October to be honored for TCC’s workforce development initiative that prepares military veterans for employment in the natural gas industry.

The expansion of pipeline infrastructure replacement programs across the state requires gas companies and their contractors to hire skilled labor to advance pipeline modernization efforts. Taught by experienced utility professionals, the curriculum focuses primarily on natural gas pipeline safety, code compliance and operations.

TCC partnered with Virginia Natural Gas and Virginia Gas Operators Association to develop the program.

Virginia’s Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy is honoring the initiative for its positive impact on the state’s natural gas industry.
