Lakeland to offer 2nd Class power engineering evening program

Lakeland College continues to make great strides in its goal to make education more accessible in the region, and to support local industry.

Beginning in January 2018, Lakeland will offer evening courses for the 2nd Class power engineering program, targeting industry workers in the Lloydminster and surrounding area.

The first two courses scheduled are the two most challenging papers of the six 2nd Class exams administered by the Alberta Boilers Safety Association (ABSA). Each course will be delivered over 16 weeks. The 2A2 Metallurgy and Thermodynamics module will be held from Jan. 4 to April 26, 2018, while the 2A1 Codes and Administration, and Applied Mechanics module will be offered from Aug. 21 to Dec. 11, 2018.

“We're providing workers in our region the opportunity to upgrade from their 3rd Class power engineering certificate to a 2nd Class power engineering certificate, with the tutelage of our experienced instructors,” says Ben Sey, dean of Lakeland’s School of Energy.

The flexibility of the evening delivery will ensure that professionals that enrol for these courses do not compromise on their work commitments.

Students will complete 100 hours of training by attending Tuesday and Thursday evening classes from 7:30-10:30 p.m. They’ll learn in the Energy Centre at the Lloydminster campus and from experienced 1st Class power engineers who are also veteran teachers, says Sey.

According to Sey, the objective of the evening program is to increase accessibility, as well as to support the local industry.

The 2nd Class power engineering program is also available through full-time studies. Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-19 academic year.
