Reference Materials

This list was compiled and approved by the Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC) and the Standardization of Power Engineer Examinations Committee (SOPEEC). It is intended to assist candidates in achieving an excellent working knowledge of related topics, and to contribute to attaining passing grades on the standardized examinations.

 

It is strongly recommended that Candidates complete an appropriate formal course of study offered by a recognized Technical Institute before undertaking to write any of the “Standardized Power Engineers’ Certificate of Competency Examinations”. Course materials for each class of study can be a good source of information in preparation for an examination. For PanGlobal course materials, visit www.powerengineering.ca.

 

Candidates should refer to the appropriate SOPEEC syllabus for the level of examination that they are preparing to attempt.  As well, they may be able to receive assistance from their local technical institute before commencing their studies. Also, candidates should be familiar with legislation in their jurisdiction (contact your local jurisdiction).

 

 

Code Reference List

 

The following are the source codes for SOPEEC curriculum materials used from the Fifth Class level to the First Class level. The candidates must be aware that although there will be questions on all levels of examinations from the following codes, the difficulty and depth of questions will increase significantly as the candidate advances in levels. These Code books are quite expensive and some are revised on an annual basis. Therefore, we recommend to students that they use Codes books from their company library or from public libraries to assist with their studies. In most jurisdictions, it is the student’s responsibility to bring code books into the examination.
