First Class Part B Paper 4 POWR 1232

Power Engineering Part-time Studies Course

Course details

This course supplements a person's practical qualifying experience (as described in the BC Power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Refrigeration Regulation) by providing the theoretical training required to enable graduates to challenge the Interprovincial Standardized Power Engineer's examination for Part B - Paper 4 of a First Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Upon successful completion of this course, as well as courses POWR 1225, POWR 1226 and POWR 1227, POWR 1228, POWR 1229, POWR 1230 and POWR 1231 plus the requisite qualifying experience, participants will have sufficient skills and knowledge to fulfill the requirements of the First Class Power Engineer's Certificate examinations administered under the BC Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Program. Graduates should be able to apply the knowledge learned in this study program in improving their abilities to operate plant equipment within the scope of a First Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Topics include Business and Workforce Management.
