Become a process operator and expect challenging work, excellent pay and high employability and be ready for the next big boom!

Do you like working equally with your hands AND brain? Are you looking for a rewarding and lucrative field in Alaska and beyond? Looking for a program that is recognized by major and minor oil and gas companies as one of the best in the WORLD? You have come to the right college!

With more than 50 years of experience collaborating with industry to make KPC’s process technology one of the most highly regarded programs in existence, students get cutting-edge academic and experiential experiences from highly qualified faculty. The program is administered from KRC's new state-of-the-art Career and Technical Center with simulators and equipment on par with current industry standards.

High demand is expected for process operators as the existing workforce retires and as the industry evolves and expands in Alaska and throughout the United States.

The PRT program prepares students for employment as operators in refineries, gasification plants, petrochemical plants, and natural gas processing facilities. Students are ready to work when they graduate—and they learn how to work safely. Graduates go to work for companies like BP, Chevron, Shell, ConocoPhillips, Tesoro, Exxon Mobil, ASRC Energy Services, Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, and many more.

Since many students enrolled in KPC’s PRT program work on the North Slope, lower 48 states or off shore, KPC offers video streaming of all courses, allowing students to view classes from their place of employment at their leisure.

This program is offered at both the Kenai River Campus and the Anchorage Extension Site. Supporting general education requirements and select program specific courses are also offered at KBC.

KRC now offers a residence hall for students who opt to live on campus. Get unprecedented support by faculty and fellow students by becoming a part of the Kenai River Campus Process Technology Living/Learning Community! Live in the new, apartment style facility and have access to the CTEC just across the street.
