Liquid Propane

About LP

This course is available as an in-house training program.

Many applications involving the transfer or storage of propane involve propane in its liquid state. In its liquid state, propane has characteristics that are substantially different than when in its vapour state. A technician must be aware of these differences and the needs for specialized components, hardware, installation practices, and maintenance and repair procedures, for liquid propane systems.
At the end of this module technicians will be able to:
Describe the physical properties of propane and chemical reactions in different situations.
Identify the codes, standards, and regulations that apply to liquid propane installations and describe specific requirements.
Describe the purpose, features, types, applications, requirements, testing, maintenance, and repair procedures for ISC valves, pumps, compressors, emergency shut-off valves and bulkheads, vaporizers, meters, remote dispensing devices, and other components used with liquid propane.
This training module covers various aspects and applications involving liquid propane including properties, characteristics, safe handling, related legal documents, liquid propane components, pumps, compressors, and vaporizers.

A Hybrid Future in Learning

Say the word "Hybrid" and what may come to mind first is an environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient car. However, as the demand for a certified, achieved recognized level of skills and knowledge increases, TS Technical College is discovering the many benefits of hybrid learning, including flexible scheduling and increased understanding by organizations and individuals about the activity in which they are involved.

Several trends are coming together that create a need for on-the-job recognition and understanding, in regards to supporting current and growing green initiatives that tackle climate change. Nationally, the federal government has made these issues a priority, especially in the Oil & Gas Industry, considered strategic for economic and security growth. Concern for the environment is one of the core values of TS Technical College, and was from the moment we opened our doors 12 years ago. Our Hybrid courses are designed to help improve the global competitiveness of business and industry through ensuring that their many workers are prepared.
