Power Engineering

Welcome to Power Engineering 101,

I started my Power Engineering career with completing my 4th Class in January 2011 progressing through higher levels of certification until I completed my 1st Class January 2015.

While working on my certifications I found there was few places to turn to for knowledge or advice on questions I had other than my instructors and coworkers.

I decided to start this website to share the knowledge I have obtained along with other Power Engineers throughout our careers to help you achieve success throughout yours.

My goal for this site is for it to become a valuable resource throughout your career.

      I bought B 31.1 & B 31.3 right when I started my 4th Class, therefore I never kept an eye out for them in the pile. From what I can recall those code books were not supplied when we write our exams in Alberta. 2007 ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, Dictionaries, Academic Handbook were often supplied.

      Yes I was able to bring in my own code books while writing my exams. I had 2007 ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code, CSA B51/52, ASME B31.1 Power Piping, and ASME B31.3 Process Piping. The examiner would look through the code books to verify there was no writing or notes in them and then I was good to go.

  1. Thank for your contribution Robbie Wyness. This website is so useful and informative for those studying Power Engineering, especially international student like me who struggle to gather PE information from many sources.

      Hello Greg, the majority of email signups for early access on the exams has been for 3A2. I’ll be working on 3A2 next and then 3A1 after that. In 3-4 weeks if you sign up for early access on the exam you’ll be able to go through the material while I’m building the exam before it’s released on the website.

    So I just found out my credit card got hacked after I bought my 3b1 exam. Not sure what kind of security measures you have in place ? Has anybody had this same issue?

      Hey Zie,

      I’m sorry to hear your credit card got hacked. Was your credit card company able to provide you with any details?

      I find it very unlikely to be as a result of purchasing the 3B1 exam. Power Engineering 101 is protected with it’s own SSL certificate via Comodo SSL certificate which uses 256 bit encryption to secure and protect the websites data from hackers. You can read more about SSL certificates here: https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/473

      For additional added protection all payments are processed through a 3rd party platform known as Stripe with strict security measures to add another layer of protection to prevent credit card fraud. You can read more about the Stripe payment gateway here: https://stripe.com/ca/payments

      For the sake of transparency this comment will be left on the About page and edits noted as additional details become available.
