In-Person SF6 Safety and Handling Training

Well-trained personnel are essential for safe, efficient and emission-free SF6 gas handling. We used our 50 years of gas handling experience to develop a comprehensive SF6 Safety and Handling Training Course. Your team will leave the course with the theoretical and practical knowledge they need to handle SF6 gas. We keep our training classes small, so that everyone has the chance to ask questions and actively participate.

This interactive 2-day SF6 training is taught at our facility in Odessa, FL and focuses on theoretical background with practical field experience to provide technicians with vital knowledge for optimizing SF6 gas handling practices. Upon successful completion, attendees will be able to earn up to 1.6 CEUs or 16 Professional Development Hours and an SF6 Safety and Handling Certificate from DILO Company.
