Allan Hancock College makes the first of what could be many partnerships for the new Public Safety Training Complex official.
Hancock entered a deal with the Petroleum Education Council or PEC.
Hancock President Kevin Walthers and PEC President Wes Carr signed the agreement during a ceremony Monday on the Lompoc campus.
The deal gives Hancock exclusive rights for the entire western United States to train future and current oil and gas employees.
Rick Rantz, Dean of the college's extended campus in Lompoc, said, "We're really honored that we can participate as a partner with PEC in providing that training, which will result in hopefully a lot less injuries and fatalities in the industry."
The training will take place at Hancock's new $40 million Public Safety Training Complex.
It's expected to open in a few months.
