CETP 1.0 Basic Principles and Practices of Propane - Blended Learning

Jul 17, 2018
Carson City, Nevada

The NPDA will be offering the following classes under the 2018 PERC Blended Learning Program, which reduces employee time out of the office while expanding the knowledge employees need to do their jobs safely and effectively. Blended learning is a hybrid approach to training for the propane industry. It combines online training with classroom training, allowing employees time to review the training online prior to attending a review class. This provides students with a solid foundation of the materials before following up with a one-day classroom instruction review of the materials. Thus, the training is a “blend” of online and classroom education.  This approach allows more time for the instructor to focus on technical concepts, to conduct more hands-on activities, and to provide additional time for review prior to students taking the NPGA CETP Certification Exam.
