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 certificate of completion consistent with the Canadian Standards Authority’s Regulation B149.2-10 for propane storage and handling.
