If you intend to be hired by others to perform gas work, you must be licensed by Technical Safety BC.
To perform regulated work, gas fitters must be employed by a registered gas contractor or must be a gas contractor themselves. If you want to become a gas fitter, you need to get the appropriate certificate of qualification as detailed in Division 2 of the gas safety regulations.
