POWR 1213 - Fourth Class Part A Paper 1

Power Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

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 theortical training required to enable graduates to challenge the Interprovincial Standardized Power Engineer's examinations for Part A - Paper 1 of a Fourth Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Upon successful completion of this course, as well as course POWR 1214, plus the requisite qualifying experience, participants will have sufficient skills and knowledge to fulfil the requirements of the Fourth 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 Fourth Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Topics include applied mathematics, elementary mechanics, elementary thermodynamics, Codes and Standards, Workplace Hazardous Materials (WHMIS), safety, plant fire protection, environment, engineering materials, welding and piping.
