Oil to Gas

A question has come up concerning licenses and also directly related required training.



Should someone who has an oil license for installation and service be required to get a gas license? What do you think about this?



If the oil license is okay for both oil and gas do you think the oil technician requires any training on installing, servicing and codes on gas?



A recent carbon monoxide incident has brought this to the surface and created somewhat of a stir.

    yes

    technician requires any training on installing, servicing and codes

    on gas?

    most assuredly

    training

    You would not take your Ferrari to the Chevy dealer for a tune-up would you....      

    I'm just a homeowner but i think that you should be properly trained in what your doing for the safety of all involved.
