Print this Article

The PTI is now offering an additional feature: when purchasing a PDF course, you can use the exam access key either on a printed hard copy of the exam or use it to access the online exam available on our Learning Platform.

As of now, when you purchase a PDF format of the courses listed below, the exam access key on your invoice will allow you to access the online exam on our Learning Platform OR the paper exam in the Document Centre of your profile. The choice will be yours.

The online exams now available through the Learning Platform are linked to the following PDF courses:

100-01 – Propane Pump Attendant
100-02 – Filling Auto Propane Tanks
100-03 – Transportation of Dangerous Goods – Propane/LPG Specific

This added feature can help you reduce the amount of paperwork, automate the marking process, and speed up the process for receiving certificates for completed training. And you will not need to print the exams anymore.

Please, carefully read the instructions if you have not yet used online exams. It’s easy, but remember:

  1. you will have to prepare a list of your trainees for the online exam and
  2. once a student begins the online exam the access key is good for 24 hours once it is activated.

Instructions are available in the Document Centre, under the category All trainers, in a document titled: PTI_TRAINER-Guide to online courses and exams_03-2021.

Prior to accessing online exams, trainees will be required to obtain their PTI Trainee ID#. To this end, they must set up a profile on the CPA Platform. For instructions on how trainees can set up a profile click here.

More online exams, which can be used with the PDF format courses, will be added over the coming weeks.
