POPR 160 - Work Practicum

Students will be placed in an industry setting for a period of 70 hours (approx. 2 weeks).  In this time, students will be exposed to operating terminology and become involved with the daily routine and duties performed by a Power Engineer.  Practicum placements will be arranged only upon recommendation of the Instructor and efforts will be made to provide placements according to student preferences.  Employers will be requested to provide a variety of tasks that fulfill student's learning objectives.  If a practicum placement with an actual employer cannot be offered, students will complete their practicum in the Northern Lights College lab under supervision of their Instructor.
