Discover the boiler and chemical calculations required to safely operate equipment and processes regulated by boiler and pressure vessel legislation. Expand your practical knowledge of boiler-related topics by focusing on the mathematics and science of electro technology and instrumentation control.
Investigate fuels, combustion, and piping as well as the fire prevention, plant safety, and industrial codes and legislation that will ensure a facility’s equipment and processes operate safely and efficiently. Knowledge gained in this course will complement industry experience allowing you to safely maintain and monitor the operation of coal, natural gas, or bio-energy boilers.
Upon successful completion of both 3rd Class theory courses, students may apply to the Alberta Boiler Safety Association (ABSA) to receive 6 months’ credit toward the work experience required for certification as a 3rd Class Power Engineer
To take this course you must have successfully completed Power Engineering 4th Class Part A and Part B theory courses. If these were completed at a different institution, then you will need to submit your official transcript for enrolment. It is highly recommended that you have also completed your 4th Class certification with ABSA (or the relevant authority in your jurisdiction), as you will not be able to write 3rd Class certification exams until you are fully certified at the 4th Class level.
Recommended: 50% or better in Grade 10 English, Math and Science.
