Our Propane Drivers are CETP Trained

cetplogoLaunched by the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) in 1988, the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) is a comprehensive, nationwide training program for employees in the propane industry. It provides a formal structure for training, testing, and documentation to assure that propane industry workers have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their work safely and effectively. Employee training is mandated by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the National Fire Protection Association, and other groups. Plus, it makes good business sense.

CETP is a modular performance criterion-based employee training and skills certification program that provides up-to-date, task-specific technical training that empowers employees to perform their jobs confidently, knowledgably, and safely. As a result, propane business managers can improve employee and customer safety, increase employee productivity and morale, adhere to federal and state regulations, and better serve the communities in which they operate.

Safety Starts with Education

The propane industry is engaged in ongoing training, education, and awareness-building efforts to promote and advance the safe handling, use, and maintenance of propane and propane-fueled equipment:

  • PERC offers an award-winning preventive maintenance program called GAS Check (Gas Appliance System Check). Trained technicians inspect entire propane systems and appliances to ensure they are running safely and efficiently, so consumers can save money and enjoy a healthy environment. The program also educates homeowners on the proper maintenance of propane appliances and how to safely handle propane.
  • The Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) is a nationally recognized training program for people involved in the handling of propane equipment and appliances. Required in eight states, used by propane marketers nationwide, and being continually updated and expanded, CETP has become the industry’s flagship curriculum in workforce training and certification. More than 120,000 propane industry employees have received CETP certification since 1999.
