I started the EC application process for that last week, I'll let you know how it turns out.
Frustrating that they are amending the volume limit for gases to accommodate 100lbs cylinders, but aren't doing the same to include 425lbs.
The Vertical forums are meant to provide for open discussion and dialogue. However, recently certain individuals' posts have sunk to all-time lows. This includes the impersonation of other individuals and fraud. In one case an individual went so far as to post a fake job listing for a company, and impersonate the individual that works at this company. This is libelous and will not be tolerated. We continue to investigate these posts. The individual(s) WILL BE identified and their names and contact details provided to company lawyers for further action.
Vertical originated from Canadian Aviation were dialogue allowed people to comment on aviation related subjects. Companies and individuals in the Industry were a NO-GO.
I believe whole heartedly that a person should have to post their registered name, and be accountable for what they POST.
Maybe that way we can get rid of the BS....., including H-A-C, the cause of screwing up the industry$$$$$$

My mistake, a 420 lbs propane cylinder has a water capacity of 454 litres which disqualifies it as a “small means of containment”. Looks like, you may be correct, and there will still be a need for the Equivalency Certificate. Under that premise, an EC would be required under Aerial Work 12.12 also
I have not had the time to review the proposed amendment thoroughly, however, I do agree that under limited access, the size of the cylinders are still limited to prevent you from transporting larger cylinder. With that being said the changes to aerial work could be relevant.
“The scope of aerial work would align with the scope of application in the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs)”. They are removing the “activities listed in the aerial work section and replacing with aerial work activities listed in CARs. Aerial work also only limits you to small means of containment (which is less than 450 L). Depending on interpretation, you could argue that any external load is “aerial work”. Regardless of who you are transporting it to, whether it be an aerial work site or a personal cabin; By simply conducting external load ops, it becomes an aerial work activity/ site.
Without looking at the job or company, a PRM position doesn't really require skills like a DOM position. Your job would be to compile reports, track times and liase with your amo for performance of maintenance. Unless they have a massive, multitype fleet then $72000 is pretty decent for the position.
