FDNY Certificate of Fitness G60: Torch Use of Flammable Gases

Cutting, brazing and welding of metals present serious fire hazards (open flames, scattering sparks and hot pieces of metal), and hazards of using compressed oxidizing- and flammable gases. FDNY requires that all persons using flammable gas torches must individually obtain the G60 C of F.

The G60 C of F replaces the G38 (Oxygen/Flammable Gas Torch) C of F. All current G38 Certificates of Fitness will remain valid until their expiration dates, but G38 C of F holders must be re-certified for G60. The requirements for obtaining the G60 C of F are the following:

G60 candidates must pass an exam on the regulations. The exam is conducted at FDNY headquarters (9 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, NY 11201).

Please email EH&S for more information about obtaining the G60 C of F.
