National Certification Process

Throughout Canada, the certification of Power Engineers is under the auspices of the Association of Chief Inspectors (ACI), which maintains a common training Syllabus for each level of certification. Certification examinations are formulated and administered by SOPEEC (Standardization of Power Engineering Examinations Committee), which is a sub-committee of ACI.  Exams are administered from common examination question banks, which are maintained by the SOPEEC Coordinator.  You should contact your instructor or your local jurisdiction to obtain the specific guidleines and instructions for certification in your province or territory. Contact information for each of the Canadian jurisdictions can be found on the SOPEEC's website.
