LIVE - This CETP NON-ACCELERATED 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.

TIMES - The online class begins at 8 a.m. EST and concludes by 430 pm for the one-day accelerated session or by 430 p.m. on the second day for the non-accelerated session.

(The Accelerated version of this class is one day start-to-finish).  For accelerated classes, if the class moves smoothly and everyone absorbs the material we may be able to prepare for the exam and test as early as  noon on the same day. 


TESTING - at the end of the class will be overseen by Mike and all “paperwork” will be submitted to PERC directly by Mike.  The testing is done live and online following the class instruction.


DEVICES - For classes with online exams, please know that EACH student must have his or her own camera-ready  and  audio-ready PC, laptop,  desktop or tablet for the purposes of taking the examinations.


PERC ACCOUNT - If the student does not already have an account with PERC he or she 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 ASSESSMENT - ACCELERATED CLASS:  Time constraint means the ACCELERATED CLASS DOES NOT INCLUDE the option to complete the skill evaluation.   NON-ACCELERATED CLASS:   The non-accelerated version of the Book One class allows you to choose, as an option, to complete the Skill Evaluation for Book One.  For non-accelerated Book One only, the evaluation will occur during or toward the end of the session.  Skill Assessment completion is required to be completed within one year of the class by you or your company or a third party.   Historically, Skill Assessments have been sent directly to the company with paper exams and the company has then made arrangements to complete the skill assessments.  Here, when you complete online exams through PERC the company has to download the skill evaluations and use a “skills evaluator” (not the same as a “proctor”) to process the assessments.  Skills Evaluations must be signed by a PERC approved Skill Evaluator (again, not the same as a Proctor).  A Skill Evaluator must do the evaluation.   Reach out to us about a Skill Assessment session for ANY CETP BOOK:   We offer scheduled Skills Completion sessions to anyone that needs them. 


The Book 1.0 Basic Principle & Practices exam MUST be completed to receive certification in any of the other CETP books. For example,  2.2 Bobtail, 2.4 Cylinder Delivery, etc., require Book One Basic Principles be completed to receive certificates for all books beyond the 1.0 Basics Principles & Practices class.  We describe the completion of the Skill Assessment the “3rd step” of the CETP Book certification process.


NO MINIMUM - There is no minimum student registration:  the class will run regardless of how many students sign up.



SNIPPED - If you are reading this text in the description on the Store, note that this text may have been truncated due to space limitations on the store itself,  and there is more to read (another few hundred words) after this paragraph.  The pdf - or the original Google Doc via the link above,  is the full length version of this summary.
