Guest Speaker Provides Valuable Information for BOCES Students

By Matt Hopkins, Business Teacher

On Monday, January 12, 2015 the students in the Job Coach Classrooms at the C-A BOCES Career and Technical Education Center at Belmont gained an appreciation for the pipeline industry and work-based skills used in the industry while attending a presentation by Mr. Randy Shayler, Director of Resource Management at Otis Eastern Service, LLC.  Mr. Shayler spoke with students from both classrooms on a variety of topics including: Otis Eastern projects, work expectations, benefits of employment, working conditions, etc.

The students were excited to hear of the potential wages for employees in this line of work.  After telling the students what the starting wage is, Mr. Shayler said, “that’s a lot of big screen televisions!”

Students in the audience also learned what it might take to advance in a career with Otis Eastern or similar companies in this industry.  

Our BOCES staff would like to thank Mr. Shayler and Otis Eastern LLC, for providing our students with valuable information related to future career opportunities.

Otis Eastern is a leading pipeline contractor in the U.S. We specialize in tough environmental and highly logistical projects. Otis has a proven track record of completing these projects on time and within budget.
