Power Plant Engineer II: This is the journey level class within the Power Plant Engineer series and is distinguished from the Power Engineer I level by the assignment of the full range of duties. Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new, unusual or unique situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies within the work unit. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the Power Plant Engineer I level. This class is distinguished from the Senior Power Plant Engineer in that latter performs the most difficult and responsible types of duties assigned to classes within this series including assigned responsibility for overseeing the development and implementation of a comprehensive maintenance plan for the power generation facilities and exercising direct supervision over professional engineering staff.
