Course Overview

Prepare yourself for the Fifth Class Power Engineering Provincial exam and build your practical knowledge of important power engineering and boiler-related topics. Fifth class power engineers commonly work as operators in small commercial plants, such as malls and large buildings, or as residential managers or custodians of smaller schools, offices and apartment buildings. Discover the principles of design, operation, and maintenance of high-pressure boilers and auxiliaries, and the mechanical and electrical equipment used in heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. Explore mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics and more.

With the knowledge that you gain in this course, you will be prepared to challenge the Fifth Class Power Engineering provincial exam.

Note: In order to write the Alberta Boilers Safety Association exam, the candidate must have six months of high-pressure plant or low-pressure heating plant experience. Prospective students should contact ABSA for their time evaluation.

Recommended: Grade 10 English, Mathematics and Physics or equivalent.
