    The Hidden Careers of Stationary Engineering

    Stationary Engineers are needed wherever boilers, diesel engines and electric motors, refrigeration, generators, pumps, operational systems and compressors are used in a fixed location - hence the term stationary.

    Stationary Engineers, sometimes referred to as Operating Engineers, Building Engineers, Steam Engineers, Maintenance Engineers, HVAC Mechanics, etc., can learn their job skills through years of work experience without graduating from a formal apprenticeship program.

    A better way to learn and earn the above skills is through one of our exceptional Apprenticeship programs.

    Stationary Engineers (a four-year program) acquire their skills through a formal Washington State approved apprenticeship program. While working with journey-level engineers for the on-the-job training component apprentices must also complete their classroom obligations. Stationary Engineers work in hospitals, hotels, high-rise buildings, breweries, and bakeries, etc.

    Along with the traditional boiler and refrigeration operation training and licensing, apprentices also learn about direct digital controls and many other building and manufacturing systems.

    We have two other apprenticeship programs that complement our Stationary Engineer program. They are Facilities Maintenance Mechanics and Warehouseman.

    Our second program and the first one in the State of Washington, and our most active program serving fifty apprentices, is called Facilities Custodial Services Technician apprenticeship program. A Facilities Custodial Services Technician usually works in, but not exclusively, public school settings. In this two-year program, an apprentice learns limited building maintenance, facilities operation, care, and cleaning. Apprentices work with journey-level technicians for their on-the-job training component and must complete their classroom obligations.

    In addition, we also offer a two-year Gardener Maintenance Specialist apprenticeship program.

    We also provide journey-level training classes so that everyone can broaden their skills and become more valuable to themselves and their employer.

    For more specific information about any or all of our programs,
    please feel free to call 253-351-0184.
    Office hours are
    8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
