CERTIFIED EMPLOYEE TAINING PROGRAM
Mr. Van Hees advised the Board that the CETP training is available online.
Facilities need to provide evidence that they are complying with the OPD (Overfill Protection Device) on the small cylinders. This can be done by displaying an OPD poster onsite notifying the public.
Mr. Van Hees presented to the Board an update regarding Rocky Mountain Propane Association and HVAC working together to create an LP specialty license. It would allow the propane people to do their normal job inside a building; including piping and line installation and related job duties in a 2 year training period instead of the HVAC 4 year journeyman training period. The problem with the 4 year journeyman training program is it includes forced air and refrigerant systems that do not involve LP people.
The process is moving forward and the Rocky Mountain Propane Association is to have a training guideline together to present to HVAC at their next meeting.
