What is spring break up and how will it affect me?

Spring break up is when the rigs cannot move to the next work site because road bans are in place. Until road bans are lifted, the rig is shut down and the crews are sent home and laid off if there is no work for them on other rigs.

Spring break up can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months, depending on weather and activity levels. It can start as early as the end of February and continue until the beginning of June.

What kind of training will I receive? Does the company pay for it?

Training starts with the Pre-Employment Orientation and continues in the camp.
