Oil and Gas Land Administration

SAIT, in partnership with Alberta Human Services, Community Futures Treaty Seven and The Métis Nation of Alberta, are offering a 31-week program to train individuals as oil and gas land administrators. Land administrators are involved in the day-to-day functions of a land department.  Students receive an overview of the petroleum industry and an introduction to land practices including mineral lease documentation and surface land practices.  Students also receive training in office procedures, business communications and common software programs used in land administration. This is a challenging program of full-time classroom training.  Classes run mainly from 1 pm to 8 pm Monday to Thursday, and from 1 pm to 4:30 pm on Fridays plus a six-week work experience.
