Safety & Training

CETP Training Program & Safety Programs
VAPGA is a recognized provider of CETP (Certified Employee Training Program) courses for those working in the propane field or looking to obtain propane training certification in the Commonwealth of Virginia. VAPGA also organizes and conducts training for first responders across Virginia. During COVID, VAPGA moved to a more company-based training program, where marketers can arrange to host CETP classes at their locations for their employees. The association is considering a move back to a published class schedule and will provide more information on that when it is available. Classes are open to both members and non-members in Virginia.

VPREF Duty To Warn Rebate Program
The DTW rebate program is designed to reimburse a propane marketer for some of the expense associated with mailing Duty To Warn information to their customers (residential and/or commercial). Marketers that choose to participate will purchase Duty to Warn materials that they need, have them shipped to their office, and submit a receipt or proof of purchase to VAPGA. VAPGA will then reimburse up to $500 per marketer. An application for the program can be found HERE.

PERC Learning Center
The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) offers a variety of training courses to improve your knowledge of propane sales, marketing, and safety. All classes can be found on PERC's Propane Learning Center.
