Course Description

5th Class Power Engineering is an introduction to the basic design, operation and maintenance of heating and other mechanical equipment used in industry, school, apartments, and office buildings of small to moderate size.
Power engineers are trained to safely operate and maintain refrigeration equipment, generators, and any other machines dealing with thermal properties. An individual with this type of certification is trained for entry level positions, and is typically qualified to work in smaller plants or with systems used at schools and office buildings. This course supplements a person’s practical qualifying time of at least six months experience by providing the theoretical training required to write the ABSA exam.



Upon successful completion of 5th Class Power Engineering, you will:
  • be prepared to challenge the Alberta Boiler Safety Association 5th Class Power Engineering Certificate
  • have the theoretical training to accompany your practical experience with refrigeration equipment, generators, and any other machine dealing with thermal properties
  • obtain a Letter of Recognition outlining your completion of the course 


No prerequisites required.
In order to qualify for the ABSA exam, you must have operated a Power Plant or Heating Plant Boiler for a period of six months.


The instructor will be broadcasted live while teaching to class on the Lethbridge College campus. This is to accommodate those who prefer online learning or are from a distant location.  

Total course hours are 96. Classes are scheduled October 5, 2021 - May 10, 2022. 
Course fees do not include the required textbook.
In order to qualify for the ABSA Exam and receive the corresponding certificate, you must have operated a Power Plant or Heating Plant Boiler for a period of six months and have successfully completed this course.
