HVAC technicians frequently handle propane and natural gas-fired equipment, spanning from furnaces and air conditioners to fireplaces and various gas-fired appliances.

In Ontario, it’s imperative to obtain certification from the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) to work on gas-fired equipment.

Enrolling in a combined HVAC and Gas Technician program offers a significant advantage. This comprehensive curriculum not only covers the essentials of HVAC installation and maintenance but also provides thorough preparation for the TSSA Gas Technician exams.

Key advantages of this training include:

  1. Dual-program integration: Acquire fundamental HVAC knowledge while concurrently pursuing your gas technician certification.

  2. Exam preparation: Receive training tailored for both Gas Technician 3 and Gas Technician 2 exams. (Note: G3 certification is a prerequisite for advancing to G2.)

  3. G2 licensure attainment: Graduates emerge from the program equipped with their G2 license, fully primed for HVAC roles and apprenticeships.

  4. Expanded career prospects: With this dual expertise, individuals can pursue opportunities as gas fitters or initiate an apprenticeship pathway toward becoming a licensed HVAC technician/mechanic.

By opting for this combined program, you not only diversify your skill set but also enhance your employability in both the HVAC and gas technician domains.
