Power Engineering Online Tutorial

4th Class is the lowest level of power engineering certification and is where you start your career as a Power Engineer.

Work experience and completing courses, followed by government examinations, allow you to progress to the next level of certification. Lakeland College offers you the opportunity to continue through to 3rd and 2nd class training levels.

Lakeland’s online learning courses are accredited by provincial governments. Completing both Part A and Part B successfully will credit you 6 months of time toward the legislated 12 months of steam time required. After completing both Part A and B successfully  you will be required to complete 6 months of steam time or attend an approved steam lab. 

This program prepares you to write either the Alberta Boilers Safety Association (ABSA) or the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK) certification examinations.

You are solely responsible for your work placement required by provincial government standards. Lakeland College is not responsible for placing you in a practicum. 

Students can only register for one part at a time, Part A or Part B, not both.
