A day in the life of a Propane Filler

We are big on safety here at CK, so we take our time to ensure you are FULLY trained before turning you loose on your own. During this training time, you will be staging cylinders to be tested while also learning what each cylinder type is, what the recertification process for that cylinder is, and the components that are needed to properly test cylinders.

You will be responsible for inspecting the outside and inside of each gas cylinder and put them through various forms of testing/refurbishing.
