Power Engineering Fourth Class

Power Engineering technicians help keep power plants running safely and efficiently. A shortage of certified technicians means job opportunities have never been better. You could work in the oil & gas industry, mining, manufacturing, energy, health and other industries. It is a physical job that requires manual dexterity and good vision, as well as problem-solving skills and a knack for working with machinery.

In this one-year Power Engineering Technical certificate program, you will study Fourth Class inter provincial standardized material, which will prepare you to challenge inter provincial Fourth Class examinations.

You will receive practical training in boiler operations, maintenance techniques and tool use. You will develop trouble shooting skill in practical labs, get boiler firing time in the power lab and industry work experience in your second term.

This program consists of two labs held at Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Regina, Monday-Friday, 3:00-9:30 pm.

Lab 1 and Lab 2 are each 3 weeks in length. Students are responsible for all costs in relocating/travelling to Regina for the labs.
