Working Together for a Safer Propane Industry

Propane education and safety training has always been one of the core goals of the Illinois Propane Gas Association (IPGA). Our work has made Illinois one of the leaders in propane safety.

Safety Meeting Registration


Thanks to IPERC continuing to approve the grant request submitted by IPGA to offset the cost of the Continuing Education and Safety Meetings, Illinois propane marketers who are actively participating in the IPERC assessment program may attend CETP, IPGA advanced classes, and safety meetings at no charge. Your IPERC dollars cover registration, lunch and classroom materials only. Individual companies are responsible for travel, additional meals and lodging.
