Heat Treatment


Heat Treatment Training Info:

    Level I Requirements:
          Minimum 1,000 hours and 6 months field experience
    Level II Requirements:

          Completion of Level I and within 500 hours of Level II completion
    Level III Requirements:

          Completion of Level II and within 500 hours of Level III completion
    Level IV Requirements:

          Completion of Level III, full number of hours and time as per the Collective Agreement


Members completing courses prior to obtaining hour and time requirement as per CBA will not be advanced to their next Level until these requirements have been verified. The Occupation Certification exam is administered during the Level IV course, so members must have all hours and time completed prior to writing the exam.

Members meeting the requirements to write the certification exam can contact Bruce Stewart for any additional training/refreshing necessary.

Members with 6 years experience and 10,000 hours are eligible to challenge the certification exam and would have to complete the application and pay the fee ($450.00). Further information on this certification exam challenge can be found on the Trade Secrets Website tradesecrets@gov.ab.ca.
