The Wind Turbine Technician program will provide students with in depth knowledge and hands-on experience of the electrical and mechanical aspects as they relate to wind turbines. You will also learn fiberglass repair techniques as they relate to wind turbines. You will receive safety training for working at heights and in confined spaces. In order to
complete this program, you must have no fear of heights and you must be physically fit.
Note: This program will follow the same course curriculum as the wind turbine technician/ industrial electrician apprenticeship diploma program; however it is not an industrial electrician apprenticeship training program.
Students who are interested in the electrical field and who successfully complete the program may be exempt from the in-school portion of the industrial electrician apprenticeship certification.
Unique Learning Opportunities
As part of our program, we will provide our students the opportunity to be certified by BZEE, the German wind industry training institute. This internationally recognized certification will ensure world wide access to wind turbine technician jobs. Another great feature for our students is the opportunity to take one course during fourth semester at the nearby Wolfe Island Wind farm, one of the largest wind farms in Ontario.
The Wind Power Industry is one of the fastest growing industries in Canada. The demand for trained and certified Wind Turbine Technicians is also growing rapidly.
As a Wind Turbine Technician you will be at the forefront of a new and growing industry. You will be working with modern technology in a demanding environment. It will be your responsibility to install and carry out scheduled preventative maintenance on large size wind turbines as a member of a maintenance team. This will include performing inspections, taking measurements and providing documentation. You will be called upon to diagnose and repair any fault and as such contribute to the ongoing safe operation of the Wind Turbine.
You will be engaged in a green energy career, contributing in a significant way to improving our environment and providing clean electrical power to Canadians.
