What Sets Our Propane Training Program Apart?

Our goal at NC-TEC is to give every student an unmatched learning experience. We do that by providing true hands-on training with equipment you will see out in the field. You will get to learn from highly experienced propane instructors during the CETP course that covers all the bases when it comes to working in propane. It is designed to prepare you for CETP certification from the National Propane Gas Association. Here are the basics of what you will get in the CETP at NC-TEC:

  • An understanding of how fuel gases work, including their physical, chemical, and combustion properties
  • Training in the sizing and installing of house piping and placing propane gas–operated equipment
  • Detailed instruction in the proper design, placement, and installation of propane systems and appliances
