Education in Oil and Gas - relevant courses? (Edmonton)
I am currently working hard on trying to find a job (with sponsorship) so we can realize our dream of moving to Edmonton. For this, I am looking to improve my knowledge and resume and am thinking of taking a couple of courses in Oil and Gas industry at SAIT. Of course, I only want to take courses that are considered valuable and relevant by potential employers. I am looking into the following options, but would greatly appreciate any advise on this subject!
