Industrial Instrumentation Mechanics install, repair, maintain, and adjust instruments used to measure and control industrial processes such as pulp and paper manufacturing and petrochemical production. They diagnose faults and perform preventative maintenance by inspecting and testing the instruments and systems in use. These types of instruments are typically used for controlling factors such as: flow of gases or liquids; temperature of materials or stages of a process; pressure maintained during a process, or level of a material used or created during a process.
If a student currently works as an Industrial Instrumentation Mechanic, and has an employer who will provide on-the- job training, s/he is eligible to enroll in Apprenticeship training. An Apprenticeship is a three-party agreement between the Apprentice, the employer, and SkilledTradesBC.
Students receive training according to the provincial Apprenticeship curriculum, as established by SkilledTradesBC, pertinent to the Apprenticeship level in which the student is enrolled. Upon successful completion of all four levels and appropriate time in the trade, the student may be eligible to write the Inter-Provincial exam in Industrial Instrumentation Mechanic.
