The Propane Training Institute (PTI)
The Propane Training Institute (PTI) is the training division of the Canadian Propane Association, and is dedicated to offering state of the art training programs to assist the LP gas industry and customers in meeting their LP gas technical training needs.
Our courses have been designed to provide basic instruction on the safe handling of propane and propane-powered equipment and satisfy federal and provincial training requirements. Most of our courses have been designed to be delivered in one day or less and some of our courses are also available with self-study materials to reduce the amount of in-class time for the student. For a list of our courses, please see our Courses page.
The national Propane Storage and Handling Code (Canadian Standards Association B149.2) stipulates that individuals who transfer propane from one container to another, must be the holder of a certificate recognized by the authority having jurisdiction. In addition, Occupational Health and Safety regulations require individuals to be adequately trained to perform their job functions.
PTI courses are recognized by regulatory authorities across Canada and we certify over 30,000 students annually on the safe handling of propane.
