Boilermaker Apprentice

Developed to meet the apprentice subject requirements set forth in the standards established by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT), the Boilermaker Apprentice program provides comprehensive training to prepare apprentices for the Black Seal License.

In addition to pre-technical and basic industrial skills courseware, the curriculum covers electrical principles, tanks, pumps, boilers, and steam generators. Operation and maintenance are stressed throughout each component and students finish with instruction in print reading.

Arrange for your employees to also receive on-the-job training to supplement this curriculum. Successful graduates of the program will be able to:

  • Discuss basic wiring procedures.
  • Describe oxyacetylene torch operation.
  • Discuss the selection of welding electrodes.
  • Describe the process for inspection and testing of welds.
  • Discuss the proper rigging procedure for lifting steel.
  • Discuss drawings and sketches.
  • Select the arc welding equipment for a particular job.
  • Select the proper hand tools.
