• TSSA Gas Technician 2

    The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) offers the Gas Technician 2 licence (G.2 licence). A G.2 licence allows you to work as a technician within the gas service industry on equipment up to and including 400,000 BTU.

    Individuals who complete the TSSA-approved G.2 training and pass the related provincial qualification exam are eligible to receive the G.2 licence from the TSSA. The TSSA awards the licence. However, George Brown College Continuing Education has been recognized by the TSSA as an approved provider of both the Gas Technician training courses and the required provincial qualification exams.

    For more information about the G.2 licence, visit the Training and Certification web page on the TSSA website.


    Course Requirements:

    If you wish to challenge the exam without completing the training courses and you have written approval from the TSSA and two years (4,000 hours) of work experience as a G.3-licensed gas technician, you can register for EX 9001 TSSA Gas Technician 2 Exam: TSSA Referral instead of completing the course requirements listed here. (If you pass the challenge exam, you will be required to complete a practical skills assessment conducted by a TSSA Training and Certification advisor.)


    You must have a valid Gas Technician 3 (G.3) licence.
