Propane Handling & Exchange Online Course

More Info


Propane is used Canada-wide in a variety of commercial, industrial and construction projects. This course will teach the basics of safe handling of both liquid- and vapour-withdrawal cylinders with a step-by-step guide to using, storing, and exchanging both, as well as how to inspect cylinders and deal with emergency situations. The program gives a full breakdown of the components of cylinders and the science behind propane, to ensure a thorough understanding of the way the chemical works. Finally, sections on the legal requirements for competency, emergency response and first aid round out the program, and upon completion the student will receive a Record of Training certificate consistent with the Canadian Standards Authority’s Regulation B149.2-10 for propane handlers.
