Company Training!

We welcome prospective International student applicants.

Working with industry, we identified the market needs for an internationally recognized training program. We wanted to formalize the training so that candidates, upon completion, would have a certificate or diploma recognizing their achievement.

Our experiences with Petro-Ex culminated in the formation of Petrel College of Technology, under the auspices of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities of the Province of Ontario, Canada

At Petrel College we combine classical classroom education with hands-on activities to enhance our students’ learning experience.

We are affiliated with other private colleges and are well connected to industries both locally and internationally. In addition to education and training, we introduce related industries within the Greater Toronto Area to our students by arranging plant tours, and exhibitions.
