Power Engineer Exam Calendar


At the 2023 Association of Chief Inspectors meeting it was agreed that, effective January 01, 2024, the 2A2 power engineering paper will only be administered in the multiple-choice format. This is a continuation of an initiative to move towards multiple choice examinations at the 2nd class level.

With proven success at the 3rd and 4th class level, converting the 2nd class examinations to a multiple-choice format will continue to provide a comprehensive level of testing of the subject material and ensure that candidates are tested on all areas of the syllabus.

The syllabus and pass mark of the 2A2 examination will not change. The amount of questions on the exxamination has been set at 100. There will be no difference between passing the 2A2 examination in essay format or multiple-choice format for credit towards certification.
