The Inter-Provincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC) is an open ad hoc subcommittee of SOPEEC. This committee allows Industry, Educators and Jurisdictional Representatives to work together to keep the Power Engineering Curricula and Approved Learning Materials relevant with the technological and legislative changes that are taking place in power, refrigeration and heating plants across Canada. IPECC also provides SOPEEC with suggested updates to the Power Engineering syllabi for all levels of Power Engineering.

If you would like to get involved with IPECC, please visit the website www.ipecc-net.com for information.


The Institute of Power Engineers (IPE) is the only national organization that actively advocates for and supports the Power Engineer Profession at national, provincial and local levels. The Institute of Power Engineers is a not-for-profit, non-soliciting volunteer organization that represents the profession of Power Engineers across Canada in all areas of concern to Power Engineers. The IPE has representatives who sit on each jurisdictional advisory council, ESDC National Occupational consultation group, and communicate with all the accredited Power Engineer Training facilities in Canada.
The IPE also attends and makes regular presentations at the Interprovincial Power Engineer Curriculum Committee (IPECC), Standardization of Power Engineer Examinations Committee (SPOEEC) as well as Association of Chief Inspectors (ACI). The IPE also provides educational opportunities for Power Engineers such as Chief’s Conferences and Education Forums with round table discussions

Through participation with ABMA, members are better informed, connected, and positioned to thrive in today’s global boiler industry. ABMA has been critical to the evolution of the boiler industry and a partner in the continued progress of this important sector


The National Association of Power Engineers (N.A.P.E.) is the oldest engineering association in the United States, organized in October of 1882.  Active for 135 years now, N.A.P.E. is dedicated to the purpose of providing engineering career advancement through our educational opportunities.

The goal of N.A.P.E. is to provide persons who work or want to work in power engineering and related fields, with the education and credentials valued by employers in today’s job market.
Through educational courses, books, newsletters, a quarterly magazine, chapter meetings, and conventions N.A.P.E. helps bring new information and technology to power engineers across the nation to ensure safe, efficient and responsible engineering practices.


The National Institute for the Uniform Licensing of Power Engineers, Inc. (NIULPE) is a third-party certification organization mandated to establish and maintain international standards of education and competency for the power and energy related trades, technologies and professions.
Its cornerstone is a qualification standard supported at the individual learning outcome level that is applicable in any part of North America and beyond. NIULPE also ensures quality control through a rigorous process of commissioning of examiners, proctors, and instructors.
NIULPE works individually with corporations and educational institutions to measure their learning programs and individual staff/students knowledge against international standards in both pre- and post-learning situations.
NIULPE assists Federal, State and Municipal licensing agencies in maintaining the international standards within legislated programs.

The Standardization of Power Engineering Examinations Committee (SOPEEC) is to develop and promote the utilization of a uniform national standard for the qualification, examination and certification of Power Engineers which will meet the needs of industry and provide for the protection of the public in the operation of power, heating, and refrigeration plants. The committee is composed of representatives from all the Canadian jurisdictions and reports directly the Association of Chief Inspectors (ACI). SOPEEC works closely with the Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC) in the developing examinations, curriculum and the syllabus for the various levels of Power Engineers. SOPEEC representatives bring to this committee varying backgrounds that range from Power Engineering, Professional Engineering, various recognized Canadian Red Seal Trades, and education.
