Use of Powder Actuated Tools Requires Training and Certification
Under OSHA, training and certification are required BEFORE anyone may use any powder actuated tool/system. Certification comes only after study and passing a written exam. Some training programs also include a hands-on experience. Many tool distributors have certified instructors. Some manufacturers offer on-line training (see member websites).
