Program Overview

Humber’s Construction Boilermaker Apprenticeship program provides the required technical and in-school training to become a boilermaker apprentice. You’ll also acquire the welding certifications that are required by a journey person construction boilermaker. Boilermakers are skilled tradespeople who build, install and maintain boilers, tanks and vessels – huge steel containers with thick, solid walls that hold liquids and gases which must withstand a great deal of pressure for long periods of time. Boilermaking requires a high degree of technical skill and knowledge along with good communication and mathematical skills. Physical strength and stamina will give you an advantage as will the ability to work at great heights.

Apprenticeships are not available to international applicants.

Courses

Your Career

Up to 40 per cent of current boilermakers are expected to retire in the next few years, increasing the demand for skilled workers to maintain, repair and retrofit existing facilities and to meet the needs of the current wave of industrial construction. At the same time, advancing technology, new materials and modern production techniques such as modular construction and computer-assisted design are also changing the boilermaker field rapidly. The skills you develop in your apprenticeship program will be much in demand.

You’ll also enjoy the travel, camaraderie and pride that come with creating something tangible from raw materials while working at construction sites, at nuclear power plants, heavy water plants, refineries and chemical manufacturers. You can also work in boiler production plants as industrial facilities turn increasingly to smaller prefabricated boilers.

Professional Accreditations & Recognition

Interprovincial Red Seal Certificate of Qualification Trade Exam

Additional requirements may apply.

Note: The requirements for the additional credential(s) are determined by the granting body, which is independent from the College. Students are encouraged to obtain the specific requirements directly from the granting body before enrolling.
