    Boilers

    I have a question, are you supposed to have a mechanical license to work on a boiler? I know the rules and regulations for a class a license, class B license, and I know the differences between mechanical license and class a license. Basically mechanical you can work with gas lines, steam, water lines, etc.
    Next. And with class say you can do 25 tons and up .
    What about ammonia systems? Are you supposed to have a mechanical license for ammonia?

    I was just wondering about this.

    Since licensing is handled by the individual states in the US (not sure about Canada and other countries), you will get about 50 different answers.

    Yes I guess this could be a controversial question. Thanks for your reply R123

    In Canada I have to have a refrigeration licence which allows me to do anything with refrigeration . I have to carry an ODP card to allow me to handle refrigerants . I have a Fitter 1 gas licence that allows me to work on anything (except vehicles) that works on natural gas or propane or landfill gas etc . Plus all the other safety certifications ...that list is as long as my arm .

    Here in FL, the EPA card allows someone to handle refrigerant, and a state license allows someone to actually open a business, and a mechanical license to do the gas.
