Training Program Approval Process

All individuals must satisfactorily complete a Department approved training program to become an authorized attendant to transfer LPG.  A LPG facility operator that has individuals who transfer LPG must notify the Department which training program will be utilized. A LPG facility operator must submit an application for training program approval to the Department if they choose to develop their own training program for authorized attendants. A LPG facility operator must notify the Department of any changes in an approved training program.
 
Submission requirements for training program approval shall be as follows:
  1. One copy of the completed Liquefied Petroleum Gas Application for Training Program Approval form (LIBI-803).
     
  2. Check or money order made payable to the "Commonwealth of Pennsylvania" in the amount of $200.00 per training program.
     
  3. For initial training program approval, a detailed description of each training program documenting all training information required by Section 13.40 of the LPG regulations.
     
  4. For changes to a previously approved training program, a detailed description of each change.
Instead of developing and submitting a training program for authorized attendants, a LPG facility operator may utilize the Propane Education and Research Council training programs without submitting a request for approval.
