School:Southeast Regional College
Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Heating, AC and Refrig. Tech./Technician
Description:Power Engineering Technician is a certificate program. It provides practical training in boiler operations, maintenance techniques and tool usage. Power Engineering is not an apprenticeship trade; however, like apprenticeship trades, it is divided into levels of skill and training. The levels are referred to as classes with First Class being the highest level. A combination of work experience and course completions followed by rigorous interprovincial examinations allows a power engineer to progress from one class to another.

You will study Fourth Class inter-provincial standardized material as preparation to challenge the interprovincial Fourth Class examinations. You will also acquire boiler firing time in the power labs. Graduates are eligible to challenge the provincial exam to obtain the Refrigeration Engineers Certificate required to operate larger refrigeration plants in Saskatchewan.
