PTI and AQP collaborate to bring Québec trainers more access to new courses and reduced administration
GOOD NEWS. The Association québécoise du propane (AQP) and the Canadian Propane Association (CPA) have been working for several months in collaboration with Emploi-Québec, the regulatory body for training in Québec. We are proud to announce the result of this work provides access to a new training curriculum and reduces administrative measures.
RECOGNITION OF TWO NEW TRAINING COURSES
Until recently, only the training curriculum, Propane Pump Attendant – 100-01, Filling Auto Propane Tanks – 100-02 and Bulk Truck Propane Delivery – 300-01, were recognized by Emploi-Québec.
Emploi-Québec recognizes two new training courses relating to the "Product supply" (RBVP) and "Filling of auto-propane tanks" (RVP) programs and will issue provincial qualification certificates for each:
- Propane Pump Attendant – Transportation of Dangerous Goods Enhanced – 100-11
This course is the same as Propane Pump Attendant – 100-01 but also includes the information necessary to meet the requirements of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act and Regulations with respect to the handling, offering for transport and transporting of propane and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
A practicing propane field personnel can either do two courses: 100-01 and 100-03 OR do only the 100-11.
The course includes both a written and practical hands-on evaluation and is available online.
- Filling Auto Propane Tanks for Fleets 100-12*
* Trainers and examiners certified to train 100-01 and/or 100-02 are automatically accredited to train 100-12.
This course is designed for those who fill propane automotive tanks. This is a shorter course allowing fleet owners/operators to effectively learn about refueling vehicles with propane. This training includes a written exam and a practical assessment and is available online.
ADMINISTRATIVE RED TAPE REDUCTION BY EMPLOI-QUÉBEC
Training certificates issued by CPA/PTI are now recognized by Emploi-Québec.
To avoid duplicating documents, Emploi-Québec now accepts training certificates issued by the CPA/PTI which have the same function as the AQP “attestations de réussite” for courses 100-01, 100- 11, 100-02, 100-12 and 300-01. For more information contact Patricia Fournel at email@example.com.
RECOGNITION OF EXAMINER STATUS
Emploi-Québec recognizes the Examiner status. Examiners are persons working for a company using propane and are authorized by the CPA/PTI to guide and coach students through the self-directed training materials developed for on-the-job training. They are responsible for evaluating students’ ability to demonstrate the skills learned and for supervising the written and practical exams.
Applications for examiners must be sponsored by master trainers or senior trainers. For more information or to obtain your accreditation, please contact Sophie Léger Cormier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
