The Apprenticeship Heavy Equipment Technician (HET) Program is designed to train apprentices to diagnose, test, service and perform preventative maintenance on: hydraulic, air and electric braking systems; trailer systems and components; electrical circuits, lighting and electronic control systems; and hydraulic systems. Due to the nature of work of the HET, it is imperative that safety be taught on a continuous basis throughout this program.
This program outline is based on the NWT/Alberta Heavy Equipment Technician Apprenticeship Course Outline.
The goal of apprenticeship training is to develop competent journeypersons through a combination of on-the-job and technical training.
The Apprenticeship HET Program at Aurora College provides two of the four levels of technical training.
