What to Expect
The Instrumentation and Control Technician 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 in classrooms and labs
- 30 hours per week studying outside of class time
Training is done at NAIT's Main Campus in Edmonton. Labs are equipped with test equipment, computers and industrial equipment.
Is This Program For You?
Instrumentation and control technician work is most rewarding for those who enjoy security, problem-solving, developing an area of expertise and working with little direction or supervision. To be successful in their trade, instrumentation and control technicians need
- the ability to pay careful attention to details
- good communication and reading skills
- manual dexterity
- the ability to lift between 11 and 25 kilograms
- good mathematical, scientific, mechanical and logical reasoning abilities
- the ability and desire to keep up-to-date with technological developments in the field
The School of Applied Sciences and Technology 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.
