Who can do it?

The Type B Gas Course can be completed by those looking to learn about, or seeking to expand their qualifications, upskill, increase their professional development on Type B industrial gas appliances installing, commissioning and servicing Type B industrial gas appliances in the plumbing, gas and electrical sector.

Type B gas appliances are typically large industrial gas appliances including: gas fired package burners, water and steam boilers found in large apartment blocks, industrial processing plants and dry cleaners. A Type B gas appliance is an appliance or system where there is no certification scheme to cover the testing of the appliance.

Other Type B gas appliances include, industrial fryers found at snack food processing plants, gas fired furnaces, gas turbines found at the Roma gas fields, Chinchilla gas plants or the natural gas power stations. Type B gas burners found in powder coated ovens, immersion heaters for heating the natural gas from the wells to gas burners to process aluminum or gas fired kilns. Small Type B high-pressure gas prawn cookers found on the fishing trawlers.

To undertake Type B gas work, the applicant must be authorised before working on any Type B gas system. This unit (CPCPGS4023B) is one of the requirements for the application for authorisation in Queensland and for other states in Australia.

OR: If you do not already have the above qualifications, we now offer Type B Gas course blended restricted electrical training course (however please ensure you have a base trade of calling to be eligible to apply for the permit, otherwise 5 years of unstructured experience) which can be embedded in the Type B gas training.

Type B Appliance definition

An appliance, with gas consumption in excess of 10 MJ/h, for which a certification scheme does not exist (applicable in Australia only).

NOTE: A Type A appliance when used in an industrial/commercial application for which it was not intended is considered to be part of a Type B appliance. An example of this is a certified direct-fired air heater used as the heating/ventilating device in a spray/bake paint booth.

Limitations of Type B gas authority or qualifications

The gas pipework to the appliance is considered Type A gas work, therefore the Type B authorisation / approval qualification does not allow you to work on Type A gas appliances, and you are not authorised to install pipework, cylinders etc. to the Type B appliance, as this is considered Type A gas work.
