The Propane Gas Association of New England offers 3-day training classes for Emergency Responders throughout New England, as well as 1-day Refresher classes. Both sessions are offered at the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy in Stow, MA one in the Spring and one in the Fall.

The 3-Day Training is for industry members and first responders that have not previously taken the Emergency Response Training.  It includes two days of classroom training from a team of industry volunteers with many years of experience in propane response.  The third day is hands-on including an opportunity for live fire training and leak mitigation. The cost of the 3-day training is now subsidized to $250.00 for industry members. Scholarships are available for Firefighters.

The refresher is a 1-day program for industry members and first responders that have previously taken the Emergency Response Training. The refresher is required every three years to maintain the Emergency Response Certification. This day consists of half classroom and half hands on exercises. The cost of the refresher is now subsidized to $100.00 for industry members. Scholarships are available for Firefighters.
