Training & Events

Emergency Response Assistance Canada (ERAC) response personnel are extensively trained in the handling, storage and/or transportation of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Flammable Liquids products and containers. Their "hands-on" training includes courses on product transferring, vapour and liquid flaring, container purging, and bonding and grounding as well as WHMIS/GHS, TDG Certification, First Aid, CPR, H2S Awareness and SCBA/PPE.

Team Training

Once a year, ERAC conducts Regional Training that is held in each region for the Remedial Measures Advisors (RMAs), Technical Advisors (TAs), Response Team Leaders (RTLs), Alternate Team Leaders (ATLs), as well as all Response Team Members to test their skills and update them on any new developments.

Once every two years, a National Training Forum is held, which brings together all of our RTLs, ATLs, TAs, RMAs, ERAC management & leadership and committee members. They gather, usually in May, to share their learnings, learn new skills and refresh their knowledge.

Our Responders attend ERAC’s National Training Forum, which is Canada’s largest flammable gases and liquids ERAP preparedness and response forum.
