Power Engineering - Computer Managed Learning
The Power Engineering online program delivered through iLearn (Moodle) is a system that provides students with a quick assessment of their academic achievement while they process at their own pace, on their own schedule. Students can enroll at any time and have one year from the date of registration to complete both Part A and B theory. A total of two three-month extensions may be purchased.
The online system is flexible and accommodates the needs of all students, including shift workers. Extended hours and the ability for students to access the system from home or work are features designed to make the training as accessible as possible.
The Power Engineering online program provides access to a comprehensive computer question bank designed to highlight subjects in the Alberta Boiler's Branch syllabi. Assessments are generated and marked by the computer and Power Engineering Instructors. The online program is supplemented by tutorial assistance offered by qualified instructors during posted hours.
- It is strongly recommended that students have Math 20/23 or Math 20 Applied, Physics 20 or Science 20 and English 20 (Grade 11).
Power engineers may be employed in any industry in which boilers are used;
• gas plants
• power generating plants
• heavy oil plants
• petrochemical plants
• pulp mills
• plastic plants
• food production plants
• schools and other institutions
• office and apartment complexes
Graduates from the program will be able to:
• ensure that safety codes and other applicable regulations are followed
• use computerized systems to control, start, shut down and track the operation of boilers and related equipment, or use automatic or manual controls
• monitor alarms, gauges and other instruments associated with plant operations
• trouble shoot and take corrective action to prevent equipment or system failures
• isolate and lock out equipment mechanically and electrically for inspection and repair
• ensure that equipment and processes operate at maximum efficiency
• take chemical tests of boiler water and other process samples, interpret them and determine appropriate chemical treatments
• assist in the development of operation, maintenance and safety procedures
• maintain a daily log of operation, maintenance and safety activities
• investigate and report on safety-related accidents or incidents
• write reports about plant operation
The course is set up in sections which correspond with the chapters in your textbooks. At the end of each chapter you are required to complete a quiz. Following the completion of each section you will write a section test. After completing each unit, you will be required to write a supervised exam.
You must achieve 80% or better for each online quiz and a minimum of 65% for section tests and exams.
