Power Engineering Exams & Proctors - Power Engineering

Your Proctor

You will need a proctor to write your power engineering exams. This is required as part of your provincial certification.

Keep in mind that your proctor can't be a power engineer and they can't be related to you. Learn more about proctor guidelines.
There are separate registration forms for 4th class power engineering proctors and 3rd class power engineering proctors.
