Are you struggling with the SOPEEC examinations or are just not sure where to begin or what to study? I can teach you everything you need to know to be successful in your Power Engineering career. I have gone through the recommended reading for you to cover off the key syllabus material that may shown up on an exam.

I have put together the training material you need to be successful into full day classroom style courses.

"I was just going to send you a note personally thanking you for your contribution towards my recent success in achieving my 2nd Class ticket. I attended several of your classes and don’t know if I would have made any of the exams the first go around without taking the courses. The questions and topics you went though combined with your knowledge (obviously along with many long hours of studying and review) definitely helped me reach my goal.
-- former student

No pre-studying is mandatory prior to class but I highly recommend reviewing your course material ahead of time to have a basic understanding of the core concepts that we will be reviewing in class.

I hold a 1st Class Power Engineer Certificate, In-Service Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspector Certificate, Welder Examiner and API 510 certification. I also bring a combination of 20 years experience in the pressure equipment industry as an NBIC Owner User Commissioned Inspector and Power Plant Operator.
