POWR 1224 - Second Class Part B Paper 3

Power Engineering Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

Course Details

This course supplements a person's practical qualifying experience (as described in the British Columbia 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 3 of a Second Class Power Engineer's Certificate. On successful completion of this course, as well as courses POWR 1219, POWR 1220, POWR 1221, POWR 1222, and POWR 1223, plus the requisite qualifying experience, participants will have sufficient skills and knowledge to fulfill the requirements of the Second Class Power Engineer's Certificate examinations administered under the British Columbia 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, maintain and/or manage various industrial facilities, plant processes and associated equipment within the scope of a Second Class Power Engineer's Certificate. Topics include: Electrotechnology, Principles of Air and Gas Compression and Industrial/Commercial Refrigeration.
