The Boilermaker Foundation program will provide students the full range of knowledge and skills required to fit, install, assemble, erect, repair and maintain a wide variety of vessels, tanks, towers, hoists and other structures, as well as ancillary equipment and fixtures made of metals and fibreglass materials.
BCIT offers both Foundation and Apprenticeship boilermaker training. Possible work sites include pulp mills, refineries and hydro-electric projects.
The Foundation program has General Admission intakes in September and March each year. Please contact the Admissions Department for specific dates and registration.
Basic theory and field-related information along with hands-on shop practice enable students to become competent in basic boilermaker construction tasks.
