What to Expect
The Insulator 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 labs
Insulators learn in well-appointed labs and classrooms at NAIT's Insulator Campus, 11637 149 Street NW, Edmonton.
Is This Program For You?
Insulator work is most rewarding for those who enjoy doing tasks precisely. It is also an occupation for people who prefer stability and security. To be successful in their trade, insulators need
- manual dexterity
- the ability to lift up to 25 kilograms
- the agility required to work in cramped spaces
- the ability to work at heights and in hot and cold environments
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.
