  • Objectives
    This program is designed to introduce students to all aspects of power plant operation and maintenance, both theoretical and practical, at the 4th 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 (TSSA) examinations required for 4th Class certification as an Operating Engineer. Theoretical concepts discussed in the classroom will be further explained and illustrated in the College's Power Plant Training Facility - a registered 2nd Class plant where students will operate and maintain working equipment in a safe and efficient manner. 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.
