Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee

Policy Statement and Description

“Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC) will be an innovative organization in advising the Standardization of Power Engineer Examinations Committee (SOPEEC) on matters related to examinations, curriculum and syllabi for persons pursuing careers in Power Engineering.

The Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC) is an open membership committee to enhance networking with the Community and Industry.”

The Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC) meets once a year in various locations across Canada to discuss issues related to the Interprovincial curriculum. Participants in this Committee include Training Providers of all Power Engineering programs, Chief Provincial Examiners and interested Industry representatives. These meetings provide a forum for Industry to provide feedback to Educational Institutes and Training Providers on issues related to practicing Power Engineers. With input from all stakeholders, this committee will propose changes which are deemed necessary to enhance the training and skills of Power Engineers at all levels of competency. Changes or proposals made at these meetings are taken to the SOPEEC meeting for discussion and approval. SOPEEC presents these proposals to the Association of Chief Inspectors (ACI) for final approval and implementation.

IPECC provided valuable input for upgrading to the current 4th Class Power Engineering Syllabus and subsequent course materials. The committee was instrumental in developing the new 3rd, 2nd and 1st Class syllabi and providing direction in the production of the new curriculum.
