COVID-19 Health & Safety Update

The health and safety of our customers and our team is our highest priority. PanGlobal continues to monitor announcements and follow Alberta Health Services’ protocol diligently. While our team is working remotely, we ask for your patience in replying to online ticket submissions via our SUPPORT tab and returning support calls. At this time, we expect shipments from PanGlobal to continue as usual. However, we advise all customers to allocate additional time to receive orders and check for delay announcements with shipping providers and Canada Post.

Refrigeration Addendum

PanGlobal has added an important addendum on Refrigeration concepts to our eBook platform

This addendum contains new learning objectives and content in refrigeration safety based on the recommendations made by Technical Safety British Columbia (TSBC) in its investigation reports of the October 2017 ammonia leak. The report examines two ammonia leaks, one occurring at the Fernie Memorial Arena in Fernie, BC, which resulted in the deaths of three people, and the other in October 2018 at a pet food manufacturing plant in Langley, BC, which prompted an extensive evacuation of the area. As this information is critical to operator safety, IPECC, SOPEEC, and PanGlobal Training Systems are making it available to learners immediately at no additional cost. In addition, this material will also be published in the forthcoming editions of Power Engineering Fourth Class, Power Engineering Fifth Class, and Refrigeration Plant Operator.

The new content of this addendum emphasizes the testing of secondary refrigeration systems, safe operation of ammonia refrigeration systems, and maintenance of refrigeration equipment. Some content may be familiar from the courses mentioned above, and the TSBC investigations suggest that it is worth repeating if this content will contribute to keeping all Power Engineers and operators safe.

Upcoming LMS Changes

PanGlobal will be updating its Learning Management Systems (LMS), in an effort to better support learner success and future initiatives!

Our first step is moving all MyPower Study users to the new platform. Starting Monday February 3, 2020, the following learners will be redirected to the new LMS:

  • All learners logging in with a textbook username and password
  • All learners logging in to online resources with an eBook purchase or subscription

The MyPower Learning LMS, used by educators and for corporate training, will be phased out over time. More details will be communicated in the near future.

 

Logging In

To those logging in with a textbook username and password:

  • Your (new) login details will be the same default ones printed within the front-inside cover of your textbook(s). If you had previously changed the password for your textbook profile, it will be reset to the default username and password found on the front-inside cover of your textbook(s).

To those logging in with a profile linked to an eBook purchase or subscription:

  • Your username remains the same; however, your password has been reset. To access your profile you will need to use the Forgot password? link on the login page. Follow prompts to submit the email address associated with your profile.

Note: Ensure that mypower.panglobal.org is added to your email settings (client) as a Trusted Domain and use the directions in the password reset email to access your profile.

 

In an effort to control transfer errors, users with profiles accessing self-enrolled resources only will not be transferred. This will impact users whose profiles are not accessing the online resources or are only accessing a combination of the following:

  • Answers/Solutions
  • Tools & Resources
  • Updates with Corrections

To gain access of these resources again, please (re)create an account and re-enroll to the required resources.

 

Self-Assessments

With the update to the new LMS, previous self-assessment attempts will not be transferred. MyPower Study previously allowed attempt reviews immediately after submitting a self-assessment and this means that learners will now have refreshed self-assessment attempts. Your length of access will remain unchanged, so take advantage of the additional attempts while you have access!

 

Support

Please submit any questions or support requests to the Login Inquiries department through our Support Ticket system.

Discontinuation of 4th Class (Ed. 2.5)

4th Class (Edition 2.5) eBooks

In 2017, the Standardization of Power Engineers Examination Committee implemented a new syllabus for Fourth Class Power Engineering examinations (our Fourth Class Edition 3).

Reminder about PanGlobal Login Credential Access

PanGlobal’s Power Engineering textbooks contain time-sensitive login credentials (unique User Name & Password printed on the front inside cover of the first book) which provide access to additional online resources and self-assessments. These credentials allow initial access to our Learning Management Systems within 3 years of the textbook print date.

After activation, the textbook’s online access time frames vary depending on the product and begin after the initial log in.  This 3-year initial activation access restriction is in place to ensure that the online resources accurately support the textbook content. Bookstores and resellers are reminded not to carry over inventory that exceeds this access time.

2nd Class [Ed 2.0] Perfect Bound Binding

In 2016, PanGlobal initiated to move all products to Perfect Bound binding from our previous coil binding process. In 2017 we received notice that this first print run for Perfect Bound 2nd Class individual volumes (2A1, 2A2, 2A3, 2B1, 2B2, 2B3) [Ed 2.0] experienced some binding problems and inefficiencies. To remedy this, our printer adjusted the paper weight, binding adhesive and added 3 hole punch for new prints. As of our second print run these issues have been resolved.

In total, as of June 2019, there have been a total of 18 reports from customers concerning the Perfect Bound 2nd Class individual volumes (2A1, 2A2, 2A3, 2B1, 2B2, 2B3) [Ed 2.0] initial print run. All of these inquiries have been resolved by PanGlobal.

Going forward, PanGlobal will continue to address issues regarding this print run until August 31st, 2019 after which time customers who purchased and received the initial (non-hole punched) 2nd Class [Ed 2.0] Textbooks will be directed to our Support system for reference, and declined replacements for purchases made over 2 years ago.

CIRKA now Supports 2nd Class Review

What Should I Know? How Much Do I Remember?

Do I Really Understand? Am I Ready?

 

Drawing from updated question banks, aligned with PanGlobal’s learning materials, CIRKA delivers an equal number of questions from the textbook content. After completion and submission of the Audit, a numerical overview of submission vs. complete success is provided immediately on both an Overall and Individual Topic basis. Attempts are unlimited during the tool subscription period and can be repeated multiple times to clarify the results.

CIRKA also provides links to a detailed Overview (Outcomes & Objectives) of the information within each Topic. When compared with the results of the Audit, this provides the learner with a comparison of their current understanding and the expectations of mastery. If this assessment points to the need for additional learning, the user may choose to review their current materials or purchase access to additional resources.

Supporting 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Class Review, two subscription options are available for all our CIRKA products at pgknowledge.com under the product category of “CIRKA”:

Option 1: 30 day subscription (unlimited attempts) $30

Option 2: 7 day subscription (unlimited attempts) $15

eBook Self-Assessment Upgrades

Our 2nd, 4th, and 5th Class eBooks have been updated to better support student self-assessment. Upgraded with the power of our CIRKA assessment engine, these eBooks will now pull questions from our extensive question bank. This means that eBook users will now experience fewer repeat questions and have the opportunity to assess their knowledge more comprehensively.

The self-assessment upgrade is live for all purchasers and subscribers of 2nd, 4th, or 5th Class eBooks. If purchased previously, your eBooks have been updated to support the self-assessment upgrade.
