According to, the average annual cost of a year of college is $32,889. Multiply that times four for the average amount of time it takes to get a bachelor’s degree. Hello, sticker shock!

In less than a year and at a fraction of the cost, you can go to a trade or technical school and come out with training that will have you ready to work and without crushing student loan debt.

Hands-on Learning

At NC-TEC and other trade and technical schools, the focus is on practical training, where what you learn in the classroom is put into practice in lab experience. You get to use the technology and equipment you’ll be using on the job, gaining competence and confidence.

Smaller Classes

Some larger university classes can have more than 100 students in them. Think you’re going to get the personal attention you need to understand the course work? At NC-TEC, we keep our class size limited to 12 students so each of our students gets the individual, focused attention of our teachers, who come from the propane industry.

No Wasted Time

It takes four years to get a bachelor’s degree. In that time, you have to take a lot of courses that are not relevant to the career you’re seeking. But when you go to a trade or technical school like NC-TEC, the only courses you take are the ones that are related to your career. We provide thorough training on all things propane, including the science of propane, how it is transported and stored, the work behind propane delivery and equipment installation, and the design, placement and installation of propane systems and appliances.
