Hello

I am planning to go for 442A exam in Ontario.
I know of Canadian Electrical Practice Exam ( CEPE ) – 2018 (ESAT) for self Test to judge ourselves before the exam.
What other study material should I use?

What book is provided during the exam; CE code book or Ontario code book?

Currently I am unemployed.
Is there any way I can download it for free?

Regards

Is there any way I can download the earlier books (2015 or 2012) for free?

You can check the OCOT site, and see what would be required.

Note: The Industrial cert only allows you to do work for an employer in a plant or factory. For the most part, it is just maintenance.
Not a very useful ticket in my opinion.Our company that works in the oilsands hired an industrial ticketed electrician from Ontario for a project we were doing.I was shocked at his huge lack of knowledge of running in power and lighting circuits.He even put receptacles on wrong.I found out that in Ontario that he would not even be allowed to work on commercial or institutional projects.

Or in residential.

I agree, the construction and maintenance (309A) is the way to go as you can work in all types of buildings with it. An industrial licence only allows you to work in an industrial building.

I think people look to that option because there is no formal training required. Essentially if you can get some company to sign off hours / experience then you challenge the exam; not a good system if you ask me.

Cheers

You don’t even have to have the industrial licence to do electrical work in an industrial building in Ontario. It’s a Non compulsory trade.

That is correct. The term that is used is "competent person".

I get fundamentally why it was that way originally. Now it is a different field out there and the rationale does not apply any more.

That has been creeping (last 30 years or so); in that at one time if you worked for GM in the automotive, you could only work in automotive, you could not work in food, municipal works, etc. At some point companies said a motor is a motor is a motor, so why can't an automotive guy work for a forge, or a food guy work in manufacturing... essentially this was the birth of the 442 ticket.

Having said that, if a company trains a guy up to do "electrical work" and is "deemed competent" he is good to go. This is how we get "maintenance guys" changing light bulbs and motor starters...

One is the actual code book and the other is the handbook. The handbook is an explanation of the rules. It is an explanation of the code, code simplified sort of. It does not include all the codes though. It is a useful tool to someone who already has the code book and is looking for more explanations of some of the codes

It will help, but will not be all you need to pass either the 442 or 309a exams.



George Brown offers a 442A pre-exam course. But they recommend field experience.

Thanks again!

Which one is the correct book to prepare for 442A CoQ exam?

Best regards

Any website that uses multiple different fonts and font sizes, combined with Capitalizing Words That Don't Need To Be Capitalized, I don't think I could trust them.



Just go to the CSA website, download the 2018/2015 App. Best option for the price. $89 is a great investment to pass the test on the first attempt, not to mention its approved by the CSA.
