NC-TEC’s training helps you launch a successful career in the propane industry!

propane tech classes north carolinaWorking in propane is a great way to make a living. But for many jobs in propane, especially propane delivery driver and equipment service technician, you can’t just walk into the job with no training.

That’s where the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) at NC-Tec comes in. Our in-depth, eight-week course thoroughly prepares you for working in propane.

The propane industry is subject to high standards and strong regulations. That is why the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) created the CETP, to ensure that people working in propane have the knowledge and skills they need to do their job safely and in compliance with those standards and regulations. Those include NFPA 58 Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code and NFPA 54 National Fuel Gas Code.

Comprehensive propane training

Our CETP course gives you a strong foundation of knowledge and skill with which you can build your career in propane. The course involves both classroom and hands-on learning. Our enrollment is limited to 12 students per course, so you will get the personal attention you need for this training.

We start with what a wide-ranging class that might be called Propane 101, as it teaches you about the basics of propane and working in the propane industry. From there, we start taking deeper dives into specific subjects.

You’ll next learn about propane delivery driving, covering driving a commercial propane delivery vehicle, how bobtail equipment and systems work, and everything you need to know about how to safely and professionally deliver propane to homes and businesses. We’ll teach you about another way propane is delivered, covering propane cylinder delivery and how to do it safely and properly.

Working at a bulk propane plant is a big part of working in propane, and we’ll teach you about that from how things are done at a propane plant to how to properly fill cylinders and cargo tanks.

Finally, we teach you about how to design and install propane gas tanks, piping, appliances, vapor meters, and more to the highest standards for safety and quality.

We offer tuition assistance.
