Indiana Propane Resume Bank
Last year the Indiana Propane Gas Association (along with our Michigan and Ohio counterparts) obtained a PERC grant for a workforce development recruitment program. Among the goals of the project was a new website specifically geared at helping attract new talent into the propane industry ( www.propanecareers.net ). As part of the project, it is IPGA’s goal to share applicants with propane retailers and members in the applicant’s area. As such, the IPGA will be providing resumes for potential job applicants. Click here to learn more.
IPGA offers CETP and non-certified employee training for those employed in the propane industry or looking to obtain propane training certification. To make training more accessible to everyone, classes are held in multiple locations. Classes are open to members and non-members and pre-registration is necessary. Due to Indiana’s current stay-at-home order, changes have been made to the schedule. For the most current information, click here.
