In order to receive a Power Engineering certificate, candidates must meet the requirements listed in the regulations of their jurisdiction, which include:
  • Minimum educational standards
  • Practical experience as per qualifying time requirements for each level of certification
  • Passing the examinations prescribed for that certification level

    Information on these requirements is contained in the applicable provincial legislation. (Click on the "Area" tab, select your home province and choose "Legislation.") Qualifying time must be confirmed in writing by the plant's Chief Engineer.

    Power Engineering education usually follows the curricula developed by IPECC (Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee) and approved by SOPEEC (Standardization of Power Engineer's Examination Committee.) SOPEEC also develops and maintains the standardized testbanks used for examinations throughout Canada, excepting Quebec. The examination syllabi can be found on the SOPEEC website ( ) or from the regulatory authority in your jurisdiction.
