Boiler Lab Training – 4th Class Power
[200 hours/5 weeks – Meadow Lake only]
The purpose of a Power Engineering Lab is to teach the students the practical application of the knowledge contained in the course material and to make them familiar with types of equipment they may encounter in industry.
This is done through:
- Exposure to equipment similar to what they could be operating in plants.
- Simulating conditions that would be encountered at a work site.
- Challenging the students to analyze and solve problems that are created for them.
The student will be required to perform a minimum of 200 hrs of lab time in which they will be required to learn, apply and demonstrate the following tasks (and many more):
- ability to demonstrate boiler pre-start up procedures
- ability to start up boiler
- ability to perform mechanical boiler cleaning
- identification boiler and auxiliary equipment components
- regulating boiler pressure
- operation of high pressure boiler with pneumatic and computer controls
