In the Cenovus Energy 4th Fourth Class Power Engineering Program, a program offered in select areas of Alberta, students combine theory courses at school and internship time. At the end of their training, they're qualified to take the Alberta Boilers Safety Association's fourth class power engineering exam to get certified.

CAREERS pre-screens students based on their academic records, attendance, application and attitude. We suggest possible matches, and the employer interview the students to choose the best fit for their company. 

After the hiring process, they will complete three summer internships of about six weeks each at the job site.

So far, most youth in the program have gone on to become power engineers or pursue third class designation, introducing much-needed younger employees to the industry.
