PLUMBER

Keyin’s Plumber pro­gram is an Ap­pren­tice Trades En­try Level pro­gram that will al­low stu­dents to be­come a first year ap­pren­tice. Pro­ceed­ing com­ple­tion of all cour­ses and work term, stu­dents will ob­tain the re­quired in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence es­sen­tial to do ad­di­tional ad­vanced level cour­ses. Stu­dents that have com­pleted all en­try level and ad­vance cour­ses, and have ac­quired in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence, will be el­i­gi­ble to write the In­ter­provin­cial Jour­neyper­son ex­am­i­na­tion to re­ceive the Red Seal Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, which will qual­ify them with national mo­bil­ity for em­ploy­ment.

34-week diploma grant­ing pro­gram.

I would like to con­grat­u­late Keyin Col­lege on their 25th an­niver­sary. I re­cently at­tended Keyin Col­lege’s 37 week plumb­ing pro­gram where I grad­u­ated with hon­ors at the top of my class. Two weeks af­ter I grad­u­ated I re­ceived em­ploy­ment in the plumb­ing field and went on to join the plumbers union. I am cur­rently work­ing at the new Long Term Health Care Fa­cil­ity in Car­bon­ear. I know that it would not have been pos­si­ble with­out all the help and pa­tience I re­ceived from the amaz­ing staff at Keyin Col­lege Car­bon­ear Cam­pus.

STEAM­FIT­TER/PIP­EFIT­TER

Steam­fit­ter/Pip­efit­ters in­stall and re­pair both high-pres­sure and low-pres­sure pipe sys­tems used in man­u­fac­tur­ing, the oil and gas in­dus­try, in the gen­er­a­tion of elec­tric­ity and in the heat­ing and cool­ing of build­ings. The Steam­fit­ter/Pip­efit­ter pro­gram pro­vides the skills and knowl­edge to lay, cut, as­sem­ble, in­stall and main­tain pipe sys­tems and sup­ports. Grad­u­ates will also be pre­pared to work with re­lated hy­draulic and pneu­matic equip­ment for steam, hot wa­ter, cool­ing, lubri­cat­ing, sprin­kling and in­dus­trial pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing sys­tems. This pro­gram is rec­og­nized by the Ap­pren­tice­ship and Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Board as an In­ter­provin­cial Trade (Red Seal En­dorsed) which al­lows the holder to work in other prov­ince/ter­ri­tory with­out hav­ing to re-cer­tify.

I grad­u­ated Jan­uary 11, 2012 from the Steam­fit­ter/Pip­efit­ter Block I Pro­gram from Keyin Col­lege’s Trades Di­vi­sion; I was a stu­dent in the first group of Steam­fit­ter/Pip­efit­ter that ran at the school. We had two won­der­ful in­struc­tors who were both very knowl­edge­able in their field ~ hav­ing worked in the in­dus­try for many many years. The pro­gram was only *37 weeks long and I learned some very help­ful things about the trade; they pre­pared me very well. I fin­ished the pro­gram in mid Jan­uary and I se­cured a job rather quickly with IPAC Ser­vices in Al­berta start­ing work in early Fe­bru­ary. I am cur­rently work­ing on the En­bridge Tank Farm in Sher­wood Park. I would rec­om­mend this train­ing to any­one who is will­ing to ap­ply them­selves and work hard; it has cer­tainly paid off for me! Justin Hatch - Steam­fit­ter/Pip­efit­ter
