Liquefied Gas Carrier - 2nd Annual Class Society Surveyor Training/Information Exchange

DATES: Dates for the 2nd Annual Class Society Surveyor Training can be found at the Event Calendar link.

Seats available: 50


1) Be a liquefied gas Class or Flag State Surveyor or liquefied gas SME of a Class Society

The LGC NCOE conducted our first Surveyor Training/Information Exchange in 2017. The purpose of hosting the Training/Information Exchange is to conduct a professional exchange of information with our industry partners. We will share how the LGC NCOE interprets applicable Liquefied Gas Carrier regulations and how we apply them when conducting foreign gas carrier exams.

To better your experience, please bring the following three items with you:

1) Bring your electronic or printed copy of the USCG FGCE TTP found HERE (228 pages)
2) Bring your electronic or printed copy of the IGC Code (1993 Edition)
3) Bring your copy of the USCG Gas Carrier Inspector Student Guide found HERE (112 pages)
*** Item 3 has written exercise, you may find it more convenient to print, but it is not required.
Note: You can three hole punch the TTP, or some have found it nice to take the TTP to a document printing franchise where they can spiral bind books for a small fee ($10).

Again, to get the most of out the training, attendees should bring a copy of the three items above.
