Dec. 16: Changes to Certification for Low-Risk Power Plant Operators
Because changes in power plant technology and thermal liquid heating systems have improved the safety and operation of such plants, the certification requirement for supervisory operators has been changed. Amendments to the Power Engineers Regulation under the Safety Codes Act also include:
- Removal of high school prerequisites similar to other provinces
- Changes to the timing of exams to provide more flexibility
- Changes to power engineer certification and qualifications
- Creation of two new operator certificates.
