Power Engineering - Computer Managed Learning

The Power Engineering - Computer Managed Learning program is a self-paced, online program where you will have the opportunity to study power engineering to gain your 4th Class or 3rd Class Power Engineering Certification. We offer tutorial assistance through appointments with instructors throughout your time with the program, and all online exams are supervised at Keyano College or proctored off-campus.

Power Engineering - Coop

The four-month Power Engineering - Coop program is an in-class program where you will work toward gaining your 4th Class or 3rd Class Power Engineering Certification. If eligible, you may also qualify for a six-month paid work placement.

The Power Lab 200 Hour Course is a program that will help you acquire your 4th Class Power Engineering Certification if you have completed your Part A and B theory courses, but do not have the six-month stream experience needed to become certified. The course is offered as an interactive training lab and covers multiple topics.
