Lakeland College is located in Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada.
Steam Chief Engineer, Greg Shaley, received the three technical manuals, “Practical Management for Plant Turnarounds,” donated by John McLay, P. Eng., R.E.T., PE (First) on behalf of JMC Consulting Ltd, for their Power Engineering program. John McLay does both STO/TAR training, “MasterClass: Shutdowns & Turnarounds,” and consulting in the region.
Mr. Shaley then provided Mr. McLay with an extended tour of the present Power Engineering lab facility as well as the P&ID of the Power Engineering and Process lab facility which is under currently construction. The purpose of this combined facility will be to provide a state of the art hands on training to PE students requiring steam time.
In the past, accessing practical steam time has been the biggest challenge for correspondence and part-time persons who are taking their 4th Class Power Engineering courses. Lakeland College now provides a program, acceptable to the Alberta Boilers Branch, of 200 practical hours over a five week period. Contact Lakeland College Power Engineering Department for more particulars.
PMTP and JMC Consulting Inc. are excited to be a part of Alberta’s vibrant technical learning community. For more information about this donation and all other community engagement projects, please contact our Sales and Marketing Department.
