  • Objectives
    This program is designed to train students in all aspects of power plant operation and maintenance, both thereotical and practical, at the 3rd Class level. Subjects of instruction will closely follow the Standardized Power Engineers Examination Committee (SOPEEC) syllabus and help prepare the student to challenge the Technical Standards and Safety Authority Technicial Standards Safety Authority (TSSA) examinations required for 3rd class certification as an operating engineer. Students will acquire knowledge in the classroom, as well as the College's Power Plant Training Facility - a registered 2nd Class Plant, and in the workplace. This diploma program is meant to allow 4th Class Operating Engineers the opportunity to progress to the 3rd Class Level. This program has been officially recognized and approved by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority. This will grant a qualifying time reduction to the student following successful completion of the program.
  • Practical experience
    There will be a four-week field placement in the second semester.
  • Academic Title
    Power Engineering Technician Diploma
