Power Engineering Technology Courses
Changes to POWC316 - Power Engineering 4th Class Boiler Lab
- We have moved to an application process for registration into the Power Engineering 4th Class Boiler Lab courses.
- Students seeking admission to the POWC316 lab course are required to apply for admission to the course.
Course prerequisites must be met before admission to the labs will be considered. Students must have successfully completed both Power Engineering 4th Class Part A and Part B with 65% or better to be eligible for enrolment.
Admission selection will be based on academic performance within the Part A and B theory components of the 4th Class course of study. Students currently enrolled in the Part B theory component are encouraged to apply, although admission into the lab is conditional upon completion of Part B. Students who apply for admission by the stated application deadline will be ranked in order of academic standing from highest to lowest, and class seats will be filled according to this academic ranking in descending order from highest to lowest. Preference will be given to NAIT students, however, applications are welcome from students who did not complete their theory courses at NAIT.
The application deadline may be extended or a section may be opened to online registration in order to fill any vacant seats once all applications have been processed.
You have what it takes to engineer a great career with NAIT’s Power Engineering courses. Giving it all you’ve got on the job is how you get paid; now, make the investment in your education and watch your career take off.
In Alberta, power engineers are certified by the Alberta Boilers Safety Association (ABSA). There are five levels of certification, advancing from Fifth Class up to First Class. Students should contact ABSA for the latest information about power engineering certification requirements. Students planning to work outside Alberta should contact the provincial/territorial certification organizations in their area.
Following a step-by-step process, NAIT students prepare to challenge the exam for each course. Whether you are looking to upgrade your skills or grab that big promotion, NAIT’s courses give you the power to get the job done.
Power Engineering classes traditionally fill quickly. Students are advised to register as soon as possible.
Alberta’s economy changes quickly and you don’t want to be caught standing still. Graduates of NAIT’s Power Engineering CML courses move into positions with more responsibility and more respect. Advancing up the ranks from Fifth Class to First Class means bigger challenges and higher wages, and NAIT’s reputation means graduates compete for senior positions across the province and around the globe.
Power Engineers operate and maintain the machinery and equipment that provide power, heat, refrigeration and other industrial services, including boilers, steam and gas turbines, generators, gas and diesel engines, pumps, condensers, compressors and pressure vessels. Your mechanical aptitude, on-the-job experience, and NAIT education can lead to employment anywhere from petrochemical plants and refineries to hospitals and hotels.
If you are currently working in power generation, pulp and paper, or the oil and gas industry, put your skills to the test with NAIT’s courses and keep your career moving like a finely-tuned machine.
Recommended to have 50% or better in Grade 10 English, Math and Science. Related work experience may be considered in place of some academic subjects. Please see changes to POWC316 - Power Engineering 4th Class Boiler Lab.
