As a result of economic growth, employment in British Columbia should grow by an average of 1.8 per cent each year through to 2019, creating a total of 450,000 new jobs.
- British Columbia’s labour force currently consists of 2.4 million people.
- Retirees will vacate approximately 676,000 additional jobs.
- In total, we can expect 1,126,000 job openings over the next decade.
- With about 650,000 young people in our education system today, the growth in job openings will probably outpace the graduation rate.
Aircraft Maintenance Engineering
Study Air Craft Maintenance Engineering – Basic Training at Dawson Creek Campus of Northern Lights College
The Dawson Creek Campus is home to the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering program, which is part of the Trades and Apprenticeship Division.
The City of Dawson Creek, or the Mile Zero City, is the starting point on the world famous Alaska Highway, and is the largest center in the Peace River South region. Dawson Creek has a population of about 12,000, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008.
Aircraft Maintenance Engineers identify problems and repair and overhaul aircraft structural, mechanical and electrical systems. Interpreting technical manuals, drawings and blueprints, and testing aircraft systems require mechanical aptitude, manual dexterity, a good understanding of computerized machinery, strong analytically skills, and the ability to read and understand service manuals. An Aircraft Maintenance Engineer is responsible for ensuring the airworthiness of an aircraft, whether it is a fixed-wing airplane or a helicopter.
The 15-month Basic Training program is designed to train individuals wanting to work in the aerospace industry.
Clean Energy Studies
Northern Lights College is happy to inform the students on the Clean Energy Program offered by Northern Lights College at Dawson Creek, BC Canada branch. This program is new and Northern Lights College will be welcoming international students to be a part of Clean Energy Program.
The Clean Energy program provides theory and hands-on training related to clean energy technologies. After completing an introduction to electrical concepts, with an emphasis on safety, students gain a basic understanding of energy efficient building site and design, and the following clean energy systems: solar thermal, solar electric, small wind, geothermal, run-of-river, and biomass. Students will also be introduced to LEED, RETScreen, and Microsoft Project planning tools.
This is an introductory, entry-level program that does not generally complete all of the requirements for installer accreditation. However, the program may also be of interest to experienced journeymen who want to enhance their understanding of clean energy systems.
Graduates may find employment as representatives of wholesale and retail energy system distributors, or as entry-level employees of environmental engineering and monitoring companies. It is important to note that program graduates must perform any electrical, plumbing, and geoexchange installation tasks under the supervision of appropriately certified individuals.
- Location: Dawson Creek Campus
- Length: 33 weeks
- Start: September
|Program||Full Time Tuition||Instruction Related Fees||Student Service Fees||Program Length||Deposit|

The program is affiliated with the Canadian Solar Industries Association, the Canadian Geoexchange Coalition, the Canadian Wind Energy Association, the North American Board of Energy Practitioners, and the Peace Energy Cooperative.
During the course of the program, absences cannot exceed five per cent of total program hours. Students must provide a mathematical set (compass, ruler, protractor etc.), a scientific calculator, and a digital camera (disposables are suitable).
The BC Safety Authority also requires a Class PV Field Safety Representative Exam for residential solar photovoltaic installation. Students should be aware that installer accreditation is a subject of ongoing discussion and review at provincial and national levels. The cost of the exam is $362.88 CDN. (not included above)
