This two-day CETP Propane Basic Principles class is Live - not a recording, not a video - and will be led and instructed by Mike Digiorgio of Silverback Consulting, one of America's recognized propane instructors, consultants and trainers.


The online class begins at 8 a.m. EST and concludes by 4 pm each day.  If the class moves smoothly and everyone absorbs the material there is a very good chance we can prepare for the exam and test before noon on the second day. 

Price includes all fees.   A link to the pdf of "Book One" is shown below:  NOTE that when you try that link it MAY send us a notice asking us to grant your access to the file.  If so, we will grant access right away and you will see an email telling you the link is open to you at the email you were using at the time. Otherwise, you should be able to download the file (Preview usually does not work due to the file size)

Testing at the end of the class will be overseen by Mike and all paperwork will be submitted to PERC directly by Mike.  

If you don’t already have an account with PERC you should sign up before class to review what they have.  It is easy and free. Go to  go to My Account and sign up.


Skill Assessments:   these are required to be completed within one year of the class by you or your company or a third party.  The cost of Skill Assessments is NOT INCLUDED with the class, however Mike can assist with these if needed.  Skill assessments get sent directly to the company with paper exams. The company must schedule skill assessments. When you complete online exams through PERC the company has to download skill evaluations and use a proctor to process the assessments.  Skills Evaluations no longer go to ITS they get sent to PERC and must be signed by a proctor. A proctor must do the evaluation. Reach out to him about this, need be 914 645 9631 or email Mike at
