If you wish to work on gas fired equipment, whether residential, commercial or industrial, you must first be certified by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA). The Gas Technician 2 certificate program, based on the TSSA’s curriculum, will teach you piping, appliances, heating systems, and venting practices, as well as business practices to provide you with a well-rounded approach to working in the field as a gas technician. At the end of the course, TSSA certification exams are administered ensuring that you are current with TSSA standards. An additional fee of $170.00 will be charged to challenge the TSSA exam at the completion of the course.
The Gas Technician 2 program is a continuation of the Gas Technician 3 modules, plus additional training on specific gas fired equipment. Gas Technician 2 certification requires successful completion of modules 10-24. These are prerequisites for future certification training. The Gas Technician 2 certificate can be renewed and allows technicians to work unsupervised on appliances. They may install, inspect, alter, purge, activate, repair, service or remove a natural gas or propane appliance that has an input of 400,000 BTUH or less and the equipment and accessories essential to its operation.
