9. In order to be issued a certificate of qualification, an apprentice must complete the apprenticeship period and pass the qualification examination prescribed for that certificate or, in the case of a certificate of qualification in stationary engine mechanics, for the class of the category of certificate sought.
However, a person who holds an attestation issued by the Association québécoise du propane inc., according to which the person passed the course entitled “Approvisionnement du produit” given by the association, is exempt from the apprenticeship and qualification examination required by this Regulation for the issue of the certificate of qualification in cylinder and vehicle filling. The person must, however, pay the duties exigible for the issue of the certificate of qualification following an exemption from the qualification examination.
The same applies to a person who has successfully taken a program of vocational studies in stationary engine mechanics comprising an apprenticeship period meeting the requirements of the apprenticeship program referred to in section 18 for the certificate of qualification in stationary engine mechanics, Class 4 of the energy production category or Class B of the refrigerating apparatus category, given by an educational institution recognized by the Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports.
