Students will be trained in the following modules:
- Propane and Natural Gas, CTEP

Upon satisfactory completion of the 200 hour Oilheat Technician Training course, the registrant will receive a Certificate of Completion from MEMA. This course, passage of the State’s Journeyman Exam and (6) months of on-the-job training, will qualify the registrant for the State of Maine Journeyman Oil Burner Technician’s License.
Propane & Natural Gas:
The full-time intensive Propane programs are enhanced versions of the National Propane Gas Association’s Certified Employee Training Program (CETP). Successful completion of each course, passage of the included test and submission of the related skills assessment verification, will earn NPGA certification. Achievement of NPGA certification is the requirement for a person to qualify for state licensing endorsements. Once certification is achieved, the initial state license and/or endorsements will be issued according to the licensing law.
In Part 1 of training, students will cover the basics of A/C and earn their EPA Certification. Part 2 will consist of in depth training in A/C as well as Refrigeration installation and service.
This new class has been created in response to industry demand for an understanding of plumbing techniques and materials, potable water & drainage systems, and how they tie into heating systems. We will discuss codes, licensing, potable and non-potable sanitary plumbing and domestic cross connections. The student will examine blueprints, conversion charts, various tools, material joining methods and workmanship. This class will also provide lab time to learn how to solder copper pipe, thread steel pipe, connect pex pipe, etc.
