CAAR is pleased to announce the launch of the newly revised online Nurse Tank Safety Program Training.

The online course is now delivered in a more user friendly and efficient platform. This course informs trainees on the requirements and process for the inspection, test and retest of nurse tanks and applicator tanks for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) in accordance with CSA B620-09.

Topics covered by the training include:

  • regulatory requirements regarding tank testing,
  • filing an application to perform hydro tests,
  • physically performing hydrotests and external visual inspections,
  • how the Quality Control Manual provisions fit with CSA B620.


Note that in order for a Tank Inspector to conduct inspections, testing and retesting of nurse tanks and applicator tanks, the facility where a Tank Inspector works, must be registered with Transport Canada. The process of getting registered is included in the course. Facilities need to re-register every 3 years.

Disclaimer: Transport Canada had adopted the CSA B620-14 version as of July 12, 2017. You will have six (6) months in which you may follow this course and B620-09. CAAR is working on a new version of the NTSCC Manual which will incorporate all of the changes that have been made to the new CSA B620-14 version. Some of the changes in B620-14 include moving to a one (1) year external visual Inspection and to a three (3) year hydrostatic test for the non TC spec tanks being inspected to a TC51 standard. The delay in publishing the next version of the NTSCC manual will hopefully allow CAAR time to work out some of the details of the CSA B620-14 changes as they apply to the Ammonia retail industry. That may possibly include an Equivalent Level of Safety permit that is currently being discussed that would be for the benefit of CAAR members. Your patience is appreciated.
