OAR 837-030-0160
Fitter License


Any individual performing liquefied petroleum gas fitting, venting, installation or repair must obtain a fitter license.


To qualify for a fitter license, an individual must pass a written examination, as detailed in OAR 837-030-0190 (Examinations), and administered by the State Fire Marshal, with a score of 80 percent or more of the questions answered correctly.


An individual may work under probationary status only as detailed in OAR 837-030-0180 (Probationary Status (On-the-Job Training)).


A fitter may transfer their license to another company.


The State Fire Marshal must be notified in writing within two weeks of employment by the new company that the fitter’s license is to be transferred.


Exceptions to this requirement for a fitter license are as follows:


This rule does not apply to individuals who perform liquefied petroleum gas installations made in a manufactured dwelling or recreational vehicle when those installations are made during the construction of the manufactured dwelling or recreational vehicle.


This rule does not apply to individuals who perform warranty work for liquefied petroleum gas installations in a manufactured dwelling or recreational vehicle so long as the work performed falls in the scope of the original manufacturer’s warranty issued at the time the home or recreational vehicle was manufactured.


This rule does not apply to an individual who holds a valid journeyman plumber’s certificate issued under ORS 693.060 (Issuance of journeyman’s license) or who is in an approved journeyman plumber apprenticeship established under ORS 660, when installing piping. If a journeyman plumber intends to install an LP gas container or make any connection to an LP gas container, the journeyman plumber must first obtain a fitter license through the State Fire Marshal.
