Newfoundland and Labrador Recognizes SOPEEC's 4 licensing levels:

Power Engineer 1st Class: Chief Power Engineer or Shift Engineer - Unlimited.

1st Class Power Engineer must have had a 2nd Class Power Engineer Licence for 2 years and have 6 years of related practical experience to sit for the First Class Power Engineer's Exam.

Power Engineer 2nd Class: Chief Power Engineer - Not Exceeding 1000 therm hours, Shift Engineer - Unlimited.

2nd Class Power Engineer must have had a 3rd Class Power Engineer Licence for 2 years and have 4 years of related practical experience to sit for the Second Class Power Engineer's Exam.

Power Engineer 3rd Class : Chief Power Engineer - Not Exceeding 400 therm hours or Low-Pressure Plant of Unlimited Rating, Shift Engineer - Unlimited.

Also, a 3rd Class is qualified to be a Chief Power Engineer of a plant Not Exceeding 700 therm hours. Finally, a 3rd Class is qualified to be an Assistant Shift Engineer of a power plant of Unlimited Rating.

3rd Class Power Engineer must have had a 4th Class Power Engineer Licence for 1 years and have 2 years of related practical experience to sit for the Third Class Power Engineer's Exam.

Power Engineer 4th Class: Chief Power Engineer - High Pressure not exceeding 200 therm hour, or low-pressure plant Not Exceeding 400 therm hours.

A 4th Class Power Engineer is also qualifed to be a Shift Engineer in a power plant Not Exceeding 400 therm hours. A 4th Class Power Engineer is also qualifed to be an Assistant Shift Engineer in a heating plant Not Exceeding 700 therm hours, or any low-pressure plant. A 4th Class Power Engineer is also qualifed to be a Shift Engineer of a high-pressure plant Not Exceeding 400 therm hours. Finally, a 4th Class Power Engineer is also qualifed to be a Shift Engineer in a low pressure plant Not Exceeding 400 therm hours.

4th Class Power Engineer must have 6-months of related practical experience to sit for the 4th Class Power Engineer's Exam.

Stationary High-Pressure Steam Engineer is an operating engineer that is licensed though competency by examinations for grades third through chief.  In the USA alone there are 100s of thousands of high pressure boilers alone in manufacturing or district heating, institutions, medical centers, public sector and with the vast majority in the private sector.

Chief Engineer of a stationary high-pressure steam plant has a leadership position and needs to command the steam plant operation economically and safety.

A 3rd Class Engineer in a stationary high-pressure steam engineer is a watch engineer.  This is also an entry level into Stationary High-Pressure Steam Engineering licensing too.  To be a candidate for a  3rd class is possible by going through an accredited learning program at a School or College or transition from LP Boiler Operator's license.  A more traditional path to 3rd Class stationary high-pressure engineers license is by experience.

Gas Turbine Operating Engineers are in demand for gas fired peaking power plants.  Gas turbines or combustion turbines as they are also called as well as simple cycle.

These gas turbines can be brought on-line producing 100s of MW in minutes when a wind-farm looses its wind or a cloud shades a photovoltic region.  So, this is especially important with more and more usage of photovoltic and wind power generators that cannot power a manufacturing base of a country or a large population since they are dependent on weather and more importantly solar activities.  Therefore, being a gas turbine 3rd Class, 2nd Class or 1st Class Gas Turbine Engineer is important to off-set the loss of base load fossil fuel power stations to meet the demand of the electric power grids.

Gas turbines come is three difference or basic catagories:  Large frame combustion turbines, large aero-derivative gas turbines, and micro-turbines.  Areo-derivative gas turbines are uses as a rule for peaking power stations.
