Boilermakers possess 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. Possible work sites include pulp mills, refineries and hydro-electric projects.
BCIT offers both Foundation and Apprenticeship boilermaker training.
Basic theory and field-related information along with hands-on shop practice enable students to become competent in basic boilermaker construction tasks.
Boilermakers must be able to work at heights.
Do you have credits from another BC/Yukon post-secondary school? Do you want to know if they transfer to courses here at BCIT? Check out BCIT's Transfer Equivalency Database to find out.
Training prepares students as apprentice boilermakers. Upon successful completion of the program, students may seek employment as apprentices. Industry contacts are available.
