Propane is used in a variety of commercial, industrial, and construction projects.

This course will teach the basics of safe handling of both liquid- and vapor-withdrawal cylinders with a step-by-step guide to using, storing and exchanging both types.  The inspection of the cylinders and the emergency management of various situations will also be covered.

In addition, this program will provide 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.  Upon completion the student will receive a certificate of completion consistent with the Canadian Standards Authority’s Regulation B149.2-10 for propane storage and handling as well as the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) standards in Ontario.
