What's new with the SOPEEC Exams
Here’s what we’ve learned and what you should expect from the new SOPEEC Power Engineering Exams this year.
The Standardization of Power Engineer Examinations Committee (SOPEEC) has announced a change in multiple choice exam format for power engineers starting January 1, 2023. Instead of 150 questions and 3.5 hours, the new format will have 100 questions and a 3-hour time limit. As a result of this change in format, the exam will be more efficient and aligned with 2nd class exams, while still maintaining industry safety standards.
Jurisdictions across Canada were expected to adopt this change. However, it has been brought to our attention that some jurisdictions are postponing these changes until March 1, 2023. For example; Ontario, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) and in British Columbia, the Technical Safety BC (TSBC). As a result, students in these jurisdictions will have more time to prepare for the new format.
Furthermore, it is also important to note that the 2A3 exam has been changed as well. This was a written test and will be changed to a multiple choice test as of January 1st, 2023. The same 100 question, 3 hour timed structure will be in place. However, this change will also face the same March adoption in certain jurisdictions. For students used to taking written exams, this is a big change, so make sure you adjust your study plan accordingly.
