Description:The specialized, intensive Electrical Power Generation Technician diploma program will prepare you to install, maintain and test electrical power generation units up to 10,000 kilowatts used for emergency power, standby power and prime power generation, in compliance with regulated standards. You will also be able to maintain, service and install diesel, gasoline and natural gas powered generators. The job market for qualified specialists in the electrical and alternate power generation field is strong and growing, due to supply shortages, climate disruptions and the increase in energy demands. Power generator systems ensure consistent power generation in response to unreliable electricity grids or when traditional hydroelectricity is unavailable.

Employment opportunities include work with generator servicing companies that sell and service equipment for mining and aggregate production industries, the construction industry, manufacturing plants, hospitals, hotels and large buildings that require a continuous source of portable, standby and emergency power. The operation of these generators is a highly regulated area and only those trained in their use and service have the skills to deal with such equipment. Upon successful completion of this program, you will have acquired this expertise and will receive an Ontario College Diploma in Electrical Power Generation at the Technician level.
