Third Class Part A Paper 1 POWR 1215

Power Engineering Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

​This course supplements a person's practical qualifying experience by providing further training in 3rd Class power engineering subject matter. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will have sufficient knowledge to challenge the 3rd Class, Part A, Paper 1 certificate examinations administered under the provin​cial regulation authority (as described in the BC Power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Refrigeration Safety Regulation www.bclaws.gov.bc.ca/civix/document/id/complete/statreg/17_104_2004 ) Topics include applied mathematics, applied mechanics, thermodynamics, and applied science within the scope of 3rd Class, Part A, Paper 1. This course in combination with POWR 1216, POWR 1217 and POWR 1218 as well as the requisite qualifying experience should allow students the opportunity to seek 3rd class power engineer's certification with the provincial regulatory body.
