American Society of Power Engineers, Inc.

Power Engineer Competency License Program

The American Society of Engineers has three license program categories. The first is the Main Power Engineer Competency license program, the second is the Supplementary Power Engineer Competency license program and the last is The Hobbyist and Specialty Power Engineer Competency license program.

 
1. Main Power Engineer Competency License Program

The ASOPE™ Main Power Engineer Competency license program consists of Facilities, Power Plant and Combustion Turbine simple and combined cycle classifications.

A person who is looking to start their career in the Power Engineering profession may start at the Facility Operating Engineer 3rd Class level, which is designed as an entry point for the person with minimal experience. As the person gains experience, they can continue to progress to Facility Operating Engineer First Class. If the person desires to progress further in the profession of Power Engineering, they may cross over to the classification of Power Plant Operating Engineer at the Facility Operating Engineer First Class level. The person may elect to use the experience gained as a Facility Operating Engineer Second Class to cross over to the classification of Power Plant Operating Engineer 3rd class.

If a person proves they meet the qualification for a particular classification and grade of license the person may take the examination for that classification and grade with out taking the lower grade examination for the classification.

It is possible a person may also start their career in Combustion Turbines. This part of the program is designed for entry level to start at the Simple Cycle Combustion Turbine Operating Engineer 3rd class and progress through the various steps of the simple cycle and combined cycle combustion turbine program. A person could use their experience gained as a Simple Cycle CT Plant Operating Engineer second class to cross over to Combined Cycle CT Plant Operating Engineer Third Class.

 
2. Supplementary Power Engineer Competency License Program

The ASOPE™ Power Engineer Supplementary Competency License Program consists of the classifications of Refrigeration, Diesel and Hydro. These license classifications are not used for progression in the Main Competency license program but have their own separate progression and are used also as supplements to the Main Power Engineer Competency license program.

 
3. Hobbyist and Specialty Power Engineer Competency License Program

The ASOPE™ Hobbyist and Specialty Power Engineer Competency License Program is designed for the Power Engineer operating and maintaining Traction Engines, Vintage Engines and Locomotive Engines. These classifications of Power Engineering are stand alone for each classification and are not used for progression in the Main Competency or the Supplementary Competency License Programs.

This program also recognizes the power engineer who throughout his or her career worked to promote the profession of the Power Engineer.
