What do stationary engineers do?
Stationary engineers are not involved in a building trade. Rather, they operate and maintain physical plant equipment such as boilers, pumps, fans, compressors, refrigeration and air conditioning units and systems, motors, automated controls and electrical apparatus, just to name a few. The work entails general maintenance—on electrical, plumbing and other essential systems—in facilities like hospitals, food processing plants and hotels and casinos. Stationary engineers also are needed wherever large boilers, diesel and steam engines operate. They work on refrigeration systems, generators, pumps and motors. Work may require some heavy lifting at times in order to repair equipment.
There is one program that takes four years. The pay range for apprentices begins at more than $14/hour and journey level workers earn more than $22/hour. Additional benefits like medical, dental and vision insurance and a retirement pension increase the total wage value. Applications are accepted only during an exam year at the Stationary Engineers office at 390 Kirman Ave. in Reno. The general entrance exam is given once every two years and the next one will be given in July 2014. Applications for this test will be due in June 2014. The test covers basic English and math and some pre-Algebra and takes approximately 2½ hours.
