Providing Function Specific Training in the
Compressed Gas Industry across
the entire United States.


It might be of interest to you that recently a Department of Transportation Enforcement Officer entered a major bottling company and issued violations for lack of training for persons handling and filling carbon dioxide cylinders. The facilities “in-house” training has been deemed to not be in compliance with 49 CFR 172.700. This could result in fines of $1,200 or more per employee.

"If a Department of Transportation Enforcement Officer entered your facility today, would you be in compliance?"
