Introduction to Power Engineer

The tuition-free Introduction to Power Engineer program has been developed through the collaboration of CMTN and LNG Canada. This program will introduce students to a career in Power Engineering with opportunities to learn about the field and career prospects.

This program is designed to introduce students to the rigors of the 4th Class Power Engineer program. Students will spend 36 hours learning about the LNG/PNG sector and opportunities for Power Engineering in BC's northwest region. Students will gain an understanding of the Power Engineering occupations and basic job expectations of the various classes of Power Engineers. Students will be exposed to basic hand skills and theory to be encountered in the PENG program. Worksite visits will be included. A further 48 hours of Math/Science prep and assessments with a refresher of the math principles required for the PENG program are included in this 14 day program.


Need to upgrade high school? No problem! Students will be assessed for Math, Science, English and Essential Skills competencies required to enter the 4th Class Power Engineer program and to gain employment in the Northwest and throughout British Columbia. Students requiring upgrading will be guided through the College and Career Prep (CCP) process.
