Process technicians work as part of a team. They are required to understand plant safety, plant equipment, process instrumentation and a variety of unit operations. Employers along the Texas Gulf Coast are asking for trained process technicians to fill vacancies created by employees who retire.

Brazosport College offers two certificates, a two-year associate degree and a four-year bachelor degree in process operations. Many employers now require an associate degree for entry-level positions. The bachelor’s degree is a great option if you want to advance in the field.
