APICC students working

APICC is a student resource. We want to connect you with industry.

Career Resources

APICC can help you locate information about “Hot Jobs” in Alaska and where to get the right training for success. Start by taking a look at our Priority Occupations Report (POR). This comprehensive study of employers across Alaska gives an excellent insight about current and future career opportunities.

APICC is currently working to develop the Clearinghouse of Industry Training and Education for Alaska. This tool will make it easy to connect with in-state training providers that can help you navigate the path from high school graduation to career.

Contact APICC to get more information or to request a presentation to your class about career opportunities and employer expectations.


APICC is the administrator for the BP Alaska Process Technology Scholarship Program. Each year BP Alaska provides renewing scholarships to high school students and other eligible Alaskans to pursue an Associate’s Degree in Process Technology through the University of Alaska. The degree program is offered at three campuses: University of Alaska Fairbanks Community & Technical College, Kenai Peninsula College, and the KPC Anchorage Extension Site located at the University Center.

Applications for this scholarship are due in December of each year, with awards being announced in the spring – usually at the recipients’ high school awards ceremony.


PTEC Programs

APICC was founded to assist our industry partners in developing a standardized training program for Process Technicians (sometimes called Process Operators). After developing curriculum that was in line with industry needs, the degree program was established through the University of Alaska. The program currently has an enrollment of about 200 students, with approximately 60 students graduating with a Process Technology A.A.S. degree each year.

APICC continues to support the degree program, providing industry input, acting as the program Industry Advisory Board, participating in curriculum updates, and performing program audits along with the North American Process Technology Alliance (NAPTA).
