About Power Engineering 

Power Engineering is not an apprenticeship trade but it is divided into levels of skill and training.  The levels are referred to as classes, starting with 4th Class and working up to 1st Class.  Work experience and course completions followed by rigorous interprovincial examination allow a power engineer to progress from one class to another.

Power engineers are responsible for the safe and efficient operation and maintenance of industrial equipment. Power Engineer Description.
