Program Overview

Electrical Power Generation technicians install, maintain and test electrical power generation units, and typically work for servicing companies that maintain power supply. It's a specialized field and the job market for qualified technicians is strong.

The specialized, intensive Electrical Power Generation Technician diploma program will prepare you to install, maintain, test and service electrical power generation units up to 10,000 kilowatts used for emergency power, standby power and prime power generation, in compliance with regulated standards. The job market for qualified specialists in the electrical and alternate power generation field is strong and growing, due to supply shortages, climate disruptions and the increase in energy demands. Power generator systems ensure consistent power generation in response to unreliable electricity grids or when traditional hydroelectricity is unavailable.

Employment opportunities include working with generator companies that sell and service equipment for mining and aggregate production industries, the construction industry, manufacturing plants, hospitals, hotels and large buildings that require a continuous source of portable, standby and emergency power. The operation and maintenance of these generators is a highly specialized field that requires specific training. Upon successful completion of this program, you will have acquired this expertise and will receive an Ontario College Diploma in Electrical Power Generation at the Technician level.

You will take the same program of study as the Heavy Equipment Techniques certificate during the first three semesters. Most of these courses are common to both areas of study. The second (summer) semester is a paid co-op. The fourth semester focuses intensively on the skills required to work in the field of electrical power generation.

Electrical Power Generation Technician students will have the opportunity to write 3 Levels of the Heavy Equipment Technician Exemption Common Core tests. Successful completion of the three examinations (70% minimum) will satisfy all in-school apprenticeship requirements for completion of a 421A Heavy Duty Equipment Technician Apprenticeship.


  • The Centre for Heavy Equipment Technology at Frost Campus in Lindsay is the only one of its kind in Canada.
  • The Centre is known for its up-to-date equipment, extraordinary hands-on learning opportunities, high industry employment rates, and skilled, knowledgeable faculty.
  • The opportunity to acquire two specialized, in-demand skill sets, through a certificate in Heavy Equipment Techniques, and a diploma in Electrical Power Generation, will provide you with a unique, comprehensive and powerful combination of expertise when it comes to your job search.
