Petroleum Mechanic Helper Training

This past year, OFNTSC’s Environment Unit and Fuel Systems Management  Program collaborated to deliver three sessions of Petroleum Mechanic Helper (PMH) Training.  PMH Certification is an entry level course which will allow certificate holders, without supervision, to maintain gas pumps, replace nozzles, spouts, hoses, breakaways, filters and belts and to assess, contain and clean up spills and leaks relating to fuel handling.  PMH certification is the first step to achieving a Petroleum Mechanic License.  Once a student has completed the PMH course and passed with a 75% grade, that individual is eligible for the next level of certification a requirement to work on either underground or aboveground fuel storage tank systems. 

Overall the course was a success and well attended.  A total of 26 participants representing the following First Nations and Tribal Councils: Eabametoong, Webequie, Neskantaga, Slate Falls, Muskrat Dam, Kasabonika, Ojibways of the Pic River, Mishkeegogamang, Wapekeka, Wunnumin Lake, Red Rock Indian Band, Shibogama First Nations Council and Pwi-Di-Goo-Zing Advisory Services.  Congratulations to all those who were successful in passing. It is now up to the individual to maintain their certification in good standing for future endeavors.  Should anyone be interested in additional Petroleum Mechanic courses, please refer to the following website for descriptions of what is required and training facilities.
