Since 1987, the Certified Employee Training Program (CETP - pronounced “see-tep”) has been the premier training program of the propane industry.

  • The CETP Certification Program is a formal structure for testing and documentation to assure workers in the propane industry have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their work safely and effectively. 
  • Employee training is mandated by DOT, NFPA and other regulatory groups and documenting that training makes good business sense. 
  • NFPA 58, the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code, requires that personnel who transfer or transport propane, or whose primary duties fall within the scope of the code, shall be trained in proper handling procedures, and that completion of this training shall be documented.

The NPGA CETP Certification Program verifies propane employees’ knowledge and skills, and provides documentation through a paper certificate as well as an online database where all candidate CETP training records can be accessed by candidates or their employers.
