Legend:
Part A =
The practical qualifying time experience required for each certificate of Qualification.
Part B = The maximum full-time attendance at a training course approved by the Chief Officer which may be subtracted from the
required practical (A) time. A further time reduction incentive has also been granted on the 1-2-3-4-Traction certificates. The full time
courses for 1st and 2nd Class may be substituted for 126 hours of evening school for 1st class and 84 hours of evening school for 2nd
class. Courses shall be approved by the Chief Officer and no incentive time reduction will be granted for evening school training.
With the approval of the Chief Officer, the approved training course school which operates a registered plant may provide the 4th
Class three month and the 3rd Class one month practical experience upon successful completion of the approved 4th or 3rd class
course.
Part C =
The maximum full-time Chief Officer registered installation, service and repair time which may be subtracted from
the required compressor or refrigeration practical (A) time.
Part D =
The class of Marine Engineering Officer certificate (steam or motor with steam endorsement) according to the
S.T.C.W. requirements which will allow the candidate to write an equal class of certification with no further qualifying experience time
(N.Q.T.) required. Operating experience on motorship steam plants will be considered equivalent provided it is equal to the experience
time, power and equipment rating required for Operating Engineers.
Part E =
The non certified officer (rating rank) Marine Operating experience time on boilers, engines and auxiliaries of
merchant and naval ships which may be subtracted from the maximum required practical (A) time. No further qualifying experience
time (N.Q.T.) required.
Part F =
Shall be at least 16 years of age.
A holder of a Certificate of Qualification as any class of Operating Engineer or Marine Engineer (steam or
motor with steam endorsement according to the S.T.C.W.), with acceptable experience, is exempt from writing the examination and
shall be issued on application and upon payment of the appropriate fee, a Certificate of Qualification as a Steam Traction Operator.
In order to qualify for exemption from the examination the authorized candidate must provide satisfactory
proof of practical operating experience on fire tube boilers, solid fuel firing, reciprocating steam engines, injectors and steam pumps.
Failure to provide such proof will require the candidate to pass examination questions based on those subjects.
Notes:
Candidates for 4th Class Operating Engineer, Compressor Operator and Refrigeration Class B examination must be at least 18 years of age.
A person who is the holder of a certificate issued by the Canadian Armed Forces that the Chief Officer considers equivalent to the practical
qualifying time and examinations for 1-2-3-4 Operating Engineer shall be deemed to have met those qualifications.
A person who is the holder of a 2nd or 1st Class Marine Engineers certificate according to S.T.C.W. or is a mechanical engineering technologists,
professional or chartered engineer, acceptable to the Chief Officer, is exempt from the mathematics and science theory components of the 2nd and
1st Class examinations.
Candidates for 1st - 2nd - 3rd Class certification may commence writing the respective class of examination upon receiving their 2nd - 3rd - 4th
Class certificate, as the case may be.
Candidates for a 4th Class certificate may commence writing the 4th class examination upon graduation from an approved 6 month training course
or upon completion of 9 months approved practical qualifying time and experience.
Candidates for Compressor Operator, Refrigeration Operator B or A certification may commence writing the respective class of examination upon
graduation from an approved 1 month training course or upon completion of 6 months approved practical qualifying time and experience.
Candidates for Traction Operator Certification must complete all practical qualifying time and experience prior to writing the examination.
