Program Description

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 patch, mining, manufacturing, energy, health and other industries. It’s a physical job that requires manual dexterity and good vision, as well as problem-solving skills and a knack for working with machinery. Saskatchewan Polytechnic is Saskatchewan’s primary provider of power engineering certification. We offer two levels of training: the one-year Power Engineering Technician certificate program and the two-year Power Engineering Technology diploma program. The one-year Power Engineering Technician certificate program is offered at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Regina Campus, and at Southeast College, (Estevan), Great Plains College (Swift Current), Parkland College (Yorkton), and Carlton Trail College (Humboldt). You’ll study Fourth Class interprovincial standardized material, which will prepare you to challenge interprovincial Fourth Class examinations. You’ll receive practical training in boiler operations, maintenance techniques and tool use. You’ll develop troubleshooting skills in practical labs, get boiler firing time in the power lab and industry work experience in your second term. The balance of hands-on labs, work experience and exam preparation makes Saskatchewan Polytechnic graduates productive on the job from day one—something employers look for when hiring and promoting. Certification Opportunities Power engineering is divided into levels of skill and training called classes (First Class is the highest level). You progress from one class to another through a combination of work experience, course completions and rigorous interprovincial exams. As a Power Engineering Technician graduate, you will earn one year of Fourth Class qualifying time credit from the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK), and be prepared to challenge: TSASK Fourth Class exams, and TSASK Refrigeration Engineers exam TSASK certificates are recognized across the country. Personal study is recommended before you write any industry certification exam. The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) of Ontario website includes a video that provides information about the power engineering industry and training that may be helpful in determining whether this career is right for you. (The program and students shown are not from Saskatchewan Polytechnic). Provincial certification (TSASK) is required to work in the industry. TSASK test writing fees are not included in tuition. TSASK examination fees are: Fourth Class - Two exams at $108 per exam Refrigeration Engineers - One exam at $108 Graduates are also eligible to enrol in Year 2 of the Power Engineering Technology program, based on seat availability.
