Where Hard Work is Rewarded

BCIT programs will be delivered primarily online this Fall. Some programs and courses include components that require hands-on learning and, where that is the case, faculty will be notifying students on program webpages that some attendance on our campuses is required. We are developing remote and in-person solutions specific to the unique needs of programs and are taking all measures to ensure your safety and wellbeing. Your education is our priority and we will continue to deliver the applied instruction, collaborative experience, and industry connections that you expect from a BCIT credential.

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.

Boilermakers assemble and repair boilers, vessels, tanks, heat exchangers and other heavy metal structures. They set up and operate brakes, rolls, shears, flame cutters and other heavy metal products and drill and install boilers according to specifications using hand and power tools.

Note: Curious about becoming a Boilermaker? We often hold information session at the Burnaby campus. Check out the Attend an Info Session or Contact Us directly.
