Program Description

This IHSA course is hands-on

Propane is widely used in construction for a variety of everyday tasks, including flame cutting, space heating, heat or melt materials, and to power internal combustion engines. It is important to understand the hazards of propane and to know the procedures and controls necessary to minimize those hazards.

Successful participants will receive a record of training card with a three-year expiry.
