Course Code: COMP-1000



Safety, Tools and Preparing Engine

An introduction to the field of repairing and overhauling gas turbine engines. Students learn to safely and efficiently operate and maintain common hand, power, and measuring tools of the trade. As well, students examine processes of preparing an engine for shipping and storage, and the operation of lifting and handling equipment with an emphasis on safety and procedures designed to eliminate component damage.

Hours: 90
Course Code: GTET-1000



Engine Operation I

An introduction to the operation of gas turbine engines including: design and construction; familiarization with various engines; inspection, maintenance and overhaul; and fuel systems. Emphasis is placed on the purpose of these parts and systems, how the part or system accomplishes its purpose and how the parts or systems relate to one another.

Hours: 45
Course Code: GTET-1100



Engine Overhaul Theory I

An introduction to the knowledge and processes required to overhaul engines. Students examine the established standards, reference materials and proper documenting procedures, the established procedures to induct the engine into the overhaul facility, how to perform engine stripping and disassembly, and the process of sorting and inspecting parts.

Hours: 50
Course Code: GTET-1105



Engine Overhaul Practical I

An introduction to the practical skills and processes required to overhaul engines. Students apply the established standards, use reference materials and proper documenting procedures, apply the established procedures to induct the engine into the overhaul facility, perform engine stripping and disassembly, and sort and inspect parts.

Hours: 150
Course Code: GTET-1110



Engine Operation II

Building on knowledge gained in an earlier course, this course consists of lubrication systems, gears and bearings, anit-ice and ignition systems, anit-stall and starter systems, and propeller systems. An emphasis is placed on the purpose of each part and system, how the part or system accomplishes its purpose and how the parts or systems relate to one another.

Hours: 60
Course Code: GTET-1200



Engine Overhaul Theory II

This course introduces students to the knowledge of: engine assembly; engine testing; the work standards for recognizing damanage, repair, and maintenance of engines; and how non-destructive inspection (NDI) is carried out. Students learn about the steps and procedure documents to organize and record parts, assemble the parts into modules, rework as necessary, balance rotating assemblies, assemble the modules, install external components and inspect the assembled engine for completeness and conformity to standards. They also learn the procedures to prepare the engine for testing, conduct pre-run safety inspections, test the engine, and completing the appropriate documentation.

Hours: 55
