The Fuels Learning Centre creates learning materials used by certified instructors to deliver short duration (8 hours or less) training courses related to the safe handling of fuels. Certified Instructors will have access to electronic formats of all our learning and support materials for the courses they are authorized to instruct. They will complete training in classroom or 1-on-1 training settings. Instructors will access a 3rd party website to access these materials and conduct a practical Skills Evaluation using a mobile device. When the instructor validates successful completion of the Skills Evaluation, the Record of Training (ROT) certificate is immediately sent by email to the supervisor of the student.
Our process is unique in Canada. Our main competitor relies entirely on a manual process and students wait 4 to 8 weeks for their ROT certificate.
To start, our initial courses will be related to the safe handling of propane. We will be launching with 5 or 6 courses. As we grow, we will add additional curriculum related to propane, as well as courses related to other energy sources, such as natural gas, fuel oil, and LNG. We also intend to add functionality to our system to provide consulting services for our customers behind a secured login section of the website. We also provide consulting to assist our clients understand their regulatory responsibilities in relation to handling various fuels.
The company is owned and operated by its two founding partners, who have over 70 years of experience in the propane and training industries. It is the experience and depth of the owners that hold us apart from our competitors. (both of us worked for the competitor until a short time ago).
Initially, the website needs to communicate who we are, the courses we are offering, how our system works and how to contact us. We also want to include an Instructor application (in PDF format) that can be downloaded. We would also like to start publishing a newsletter that would be available on the website.
