P3 TRAINING

CRITICAL SAFETY TRAINING FOR PROPANE MARKETERS
DO YOU HAVE THE REQUIRMENTS YOU NEED?


Proper propane safety training is critical for propane marketers. Numerous regulatory authorities including DOT, OSHA, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, National Fire Protection Association, and more require specific training. Noncompliance can result in substantial fines. For some marketers, knowing where to start can be a somewhat daunting challenge. P3 Propane Safety can provide a thorough needs assessment to understand your business and identify what you need to stay safe and compliant.


P3 also provides a free review of current documentation prior to the training so priority areas of focus can be identified and the post training impact can be quantified.


TRAINING FOR THE PROPANE INDUSTRY

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING...

NEEDS ASSESSMENT, PLAN DEVELOPMENT, TRACKING, AND REVIEW

"Prior to the start of our training dates P3 identified areas where our technicians were falling short. This allowed the sessions to be tailored specifically for us."
- Jeff Henderson, Branch Manager, RH Foster

CETP, OSHA, DOT CLASSROOM TRAINING

"We do a lot of in-house training but there are times we have to outsource our CETP training. We reached out to P3 and they offered the best CETP instructor/proctor we have ever had. They clearly proved that not all training opportunities are the same. If you outsource your training, make sure it is through P3."
- David Latourell, Director of Safety & Transportation, Paraco Gas

HANDS-ON FIELD TRAINING

"P3's Field Service Plan training goes well beyond the conventional classroom format. Having a safety expert train in the field at customer locations with our team was when the real learning happened!"
- Jeff Jennings, Co-Owner, Jennings Oil & Propane

REMOTE ON-CALL SUPPORT

"I don't know what we would do without P3's Training Service Plan! It's been critical for us to have an expert available that can provide guidance when needed."
- Randy Dominick, Vice President, Dominick Fuel
