After a few years of preparation, Southeast College has announced they will be offering their own third class power engineering theory-only course. The first course is scheduled to start Feb. 5, 2018, at the Estevan campus.
“We developed this course to assist with the continued training of power engineers in our region,” said Jody Holzmiller, vice-president of training at Southeast College. “We recognized an opportunity to provide flexibility in the delivery model as well as to assist out students in a focused approach as they prepare for their regulatory exams through the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK).”
The course is 15 weeks in length and covers the requirements needed to prepare students to write their TSASK examinations. The course has been recognized by TSASK as an approved third class theory program. Successful completion of the course and exams credits students with six months time towards their stream time requirement at the third class level.
In addition to the fulltime program offered, Southeast College also offers employers flexible delivery options to accommodate the continued learning and success of their employees. “Because this is Southeast College’s course, we have the flexibility to deliver it according to the needs of out students and their employers,” said Holzmiller. “I encourage any area employer interested in exploring this option to give us a call to discuss the varied learning options for their employees.”
Applications are currently being accepted for the 15-week program. Interested students are encouraged to visit the college’s website or call the college for more information.
