Objectifs du programme

The Stationary Engine Mechanics vocational program prepares students for the profession of stationary engineer.

Stationary engineers work in real estate complexes, government or municipal establishments, health or educational institutions, service industries (surveillance, system maintenance and repair), thermal power plants that produce electricity or supply heating and air conditioning to various clients, or for companies that transform raw materials or produce finished goods. They are responsible for ensuring the correct installation and operation of heating and refrigeration systems, as well as ventilation and air conditioning systems in buildings. They are responsible for stationary engines such as boilers, steam generators, steam turbines or engines, refrigeration devices, internal combustion engines, etc., along with any accessories and pipework. They control the operation of stationary engines to ensure the comfort of individuals who work or live in the facilities, and they must oversee the different production processes. The upkeep of these systems falls under their duties.

As they must operate and maintain pressure vessels, and because they manipulate dangerous substances, such as gas, stationary engineers must hold a certificate of qualification.

Conditions d'admission

To be eligible for admission to this program, candidates must meet one of the following requirements:

Persons holding a Secondary School Diploma or its recognized equivalent, for example, an Attestation of Equivalence of Secondary V studies, or a postsecondary diploma such as the Diploma of College Studies or a Bachelor's degree

Préalables fonctionnels

Une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans peut être admise à un programme d’études menant à un Diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP) sur la base des préalables fonctionnels. Ces préalables fonctionnels, prescrits pour une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans à la date de début de fréquentation déclarée dans le programme d’études professionnelle sont : la réussite du test de développement général (TDG) et l’obtention et la réussite des épreuves relatives aux préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique, s’il y a lieu.

Ce tableau indique les nouveaux codes de cours de la formation de base commune (FBC) et de la formation de base diversifiée (FBD) exigés pour les préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique pour le programme d’études visé. Dans le contexte où les nouveaux codes de cours de la FBC et de la FBD sont en implantation progressive, on indique entre parenthèses les anciens codes de cours toujours valides. Le code de cours équivalent en formation générale des jeunes est également indiqué dans ce tableau. Lorsqu’un DEP n’exige pas de préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement ou en mathématique, un (-) figure dans les cellules visées. Il est à noter que les préalables fonctionnels ne s’appliquent pas pour les programmes d’attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP).
