Welcome to CTC Seminars

Here you will find information regarding Hazmat Training for Cylinder Retesters. That is what we do, and it is ALL we do. We provide training seminars for people who retest cylinders.

Darrell Garton (former Vice President of Galiso Inc.) created these seminars and has trained over 4,000 people since 1986. That's the real number, not counting duplicates who have come back for their recurrent training! No one else in the world has taught that many people to test cylinders. Included in the list of those trained by Mr. Garton are many of the DOT Enforcement Officers, FAA Inspectors, and TC (Transport Canada) Field Inspectors. In July of 2000 Mr. Garton branched off and created his own company. This new company, CTC (Certified Training Co.), is offering the same informative seminars that have become the standard of this industry.
