***ATTENTION MEDICAL GAS CERTIFICATION HOLDERS- PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING
Attention Current Med Gas Certification Holder:
This notice is to inform you that starting 2013 all current Med Gas Installer’s must take a 4 hour recertification class with an additional 2 ½ hour proctored test. The test will consist of forty questions and passing is receiving 80% or better. Please note that your Brazer must be current to take the test. If your Brazer should go expired it is your responsibility to get it updated before you can be scheduled for the recertification class. Failure to do so will result in you taking the full Med Gas class at your expense.
We will no longer be able to take walk-in’s for the class/test. Paperwork must be completed 3 weeks before the test is taken. You will receive notice by mail of when you will need to fill out your paperwork and let you know your scheduled test date.
As of 2013 this is something new being implemented on the Med Gas certification holders, and we are working on getting our records updated to make sure everyone gets proper notification to get recertified. If you do not receive a letter and your Installer is within 3 months to expiration please let us know so that we can get you scheduled for a class and test.
If you have any questions concerning your Med Gas certification status give the PPATKS office a call 316-267-8508.
If you are interested in taking a Med Gas Class and becoming certified please contact the PPATKS office to find out testing dates.
