What to Expect
The Gasfitter program follows the current Alberta Apprenticeship Course Outline (pdf) to ensure all students are provided with appropriate training experiences to successfully pass their apprenticeship examinations.
Classroom & Study Hours
Students can expect to spend, on average
- 30 hours per week attending classes and in specialized gasfitter training labs
Training takes place at NAIT Patricia Campus, 12204 149 Street NW, with some components being taught at Souch Campus and the Petroleum Industry Training Service (PITS) at Nisku.
Is This Program For You?
Gasfitter work is most rewarding for those who enjoy working with little direction or supervision. People in this field also enjoy variety in a job as well as security. To be successful in this trade, gasfitters need
- the ability to work with little supervision
- the skill to diagnose problems
- the ability to lift in excess of 25 kilograms
- mechanical, electrical and electronic aptitude
- manual dexterity
- the ability to deal courteously with customers
The School of Skilled Trades wants our first-year students to become confident in their abilities, get connected to NAIT through groups, peers and staff, be supported personally and academically, get motivated to complete their program and most importantly enjoy the learning environment here at NAIT.
Being an apprentice student is quite different from being a full-time student. Apprentices are in school for short periods of time and some programs are on satellite campuses. Our goal is to improve communication with apprentices on all campuses to ensure you have access to all the services we have to offer at NAIT for you to be successful.
