Energy Technology Education Center

Lycoming County Department of Public Safety

Energy Technology Education Center is a collaboration between Pennsylvania College of Technology and Lycoming County Department of Public Safety and was made possible by significant investments by industry.

The training center supports local emergency responders by providing hands-on instruction that enables them to understand and implement effective emergency-response practices – the kind they may encounter at typical gas-field drilling and production sites.

In addition, the site is used for industry training and training of potential new hires and incumbent workers through classes that Penn College provides for gas and other industry occupations.

The site features:

  • Drilling rig trainer
  • Live fire props
    • wellhead
    • separator
    • house meter
    • flange
    • flammable liquids simulator
    • tank battery
  • Frac site display
