The term schedule above demonstrates a September intake program map. Students entering this program in January or May will follow a separate term schedule.

This program will provide theory and skills to operate, maintain and manage industrial plants that produce steam and power. In every Canadian province and territory, only certified power engineers are permitted to operate such equipment. This program prepares candidates at the 4th Class level in preparation to write their 4th Class inter-provincial examinations. Students will have an opportunity to participate in one co-op placement to gain additional practical time towards their certification. The vast majority of these work experiences in this accelerated program will be out-of-province.

Students will have opportunity to graduate after the 4th Class part of the program with a Power Engineering Technician – Chemical - Accelerated diploma, or to continue with the Power Engineering Technology – Chemical Accelerated program working towards 3rd class certification. This would take an additional year of study (3 terms) and then a work experience placement for 3rd Class.

Please Note: Post-Graduate Work Permit eligibility is determined solely by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Lambton College does not consider the Power Engineering Technician - Accelerated (PTNX) program suitable for students seeking to apply for a Post-Graduate Work Permit greater than 1 year in length. A more suitable alternative for students seeking eligibility to apply for a longer Post-Graduate Work Permit are encouraged to explore our Power Engineering Technology - Accelerated (PETX) program.
