Pennsylvania’s Propane Industry Needs Energy Professionals!
CDL Student, Clearfield County Career & Tecnology Center
When I decided to get my CDL, I figured I’d have to take a position over the road, being away from home for several nights at a time. I never realized the propane industry offered CDL driving positions that allowed me to be home each night. In fact, I didn’t know much about the propane industry at all. I am so thankful for GeneratioNext Propane Pros coming to my school and educating us on the career opportunities in propane. They provide competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits, bonuses and upward mobility. All CDL drivers should take a look at what the propane industry has to offer!
HVACR Instructor, Lehigh Carbon Community College
Excellent presentation – it exceeded my expectations. It gave the students a good picture of the propane aspect of the HVACR trade. It also expanded the students’ knowledge of the areas and current equipment where “traditional” propane use is expanding – vehicles and refrigerants. The presentation apparently made a good impression on the students – it was nice to hear students talk about the presentation after class. I plan to include this presentation for each cohort coming through our program.
Truck Driver Training Co-Director, Clearfield County Career and Technology Center
“GeneratioNext Propane Pros, thank you very much for the taking the time to talk to our CDL students here at CCCTC the other day. The students were very engaged in the discussion and many were very impressed with the job opportunities that the propane industry has to offer. I do know a couple of the students even said they are going to pursue careers in the propane industry based solely off of the meeting. Thank you again for talking with our students and I look forward to having you present to future classes!”
Executive Director, PA Propane Gas Association
“I may be biased, however, I believe GeneratioNext Propane Pros is the top Workforce Recruitment Program currently developed in the industry. In less than a year, our program in Pennsylvania has built a database of nearly 500 applicants seeking propane career opportunities. Several propane marketers have hiring success stories with more connecting with prospective employees every day.”
Heating, Ventilation, Refrigeration, and Plumbing Instructor. Career Institute of Technology
“GeneratioNext Propane Pros came to speak at our school recently and it was a great experience for our students. Students were able to learn about the propane industry, how their classroom training could be applied to various propane jobs, and what the propane industry has to offer for career opportunities. Not only did my students get to learn about a future career path, they actually got to meet a potential employer. The presentation gave them insight on opportunities that are out there for them after graduation.”
General Manager—Propane, Smith Propane, and Oil
“Last month I had the pleasure of meeting with CDL and HVAC students at Western Pennsylvania’s Central Westmoreland Career and Technology Center on behalf of GenerationNext Propane Pros. It was by far the most rewarding recruiting experience I’ve had as a manager. I was afforded time not just to speak about Smith Propane & Oil, but about our industry. During the presentation, we were able to dispel a lot of negative myths while introducing a new cohort of potential employees to what is great about propane. It wasn’t just about interacting with students and making connections with administrators though, I walked out of CWC&TC with great job applicants, too. Every manager in the industry should be invested in the success of this program, because it is invested in our success.”
Lehigh Career & Technical Institute
“When the team from GeneratioNext Propane Pros came to speak at our school, I was unaware of how much the propane industry had to offer our students. Now we, students and faculty, know more about the viable job opportunities there are right here in our community. My students also took advantage of the GeneratioNext website, and successfully set up an account. The website allows them to connect with local propane marketers is an invaluable tool for our technical students. The platform is easy to use and helps students create real-world connections with potential employers.”

Student Success Coordinator, Rosedale Technical College
“Thank you to Michele and Dave from GeneratioNext Propane Pros for presenting virtually to Rosedale Tech’s HVAC Class. Our students got to learn about the Propane Industry and were able to ask great questions about the opportunities they have. It was exciting to hear that the HVAC skill set our students have correlates directly into the propane industry – and that they would be in high demand. The ability for the students to connect with potential employers through the GeneratioNext Propane Pros web portal is awesome!
I look forward to continuing to work with GeneratioNext Propane Pros and I am excited for their future presentations to provide our students with more connections.”

HVAC and Plumbing Instructor, Schuylkill Technology Center
“GeneratioNext Propane Pros recently spoke to our plumbing and heating students, and it was a great presentation that let the students know there are more varied areas of our trade that they might not have thought of when thinking about their future careers. The ability to become a trained professional and grow with a company is a great opportunity that was presented to the students very well.”
Technical Support and Training Manager, Ray Murray Inc.
“If you own or manage a propane company in Pennsylvania, don’t miss out on working with GeneratioNext Propane Pros! I recently joined them in presenting at a local technical school. It was an easy way to get in front of future hires and help them make the first step in connecting with our industry. Many did not know about the rewarding career that was awaiting them but were eager to explore the possibilities.”
Student Services Coordinator, PIA—Jump Start Training Division
“It was great learning more about the opportunities that are available to our graduates within the Propane gas industry. The students showed interest in how they could directly impact their communities. The GeneratioNext website is simple and easy to use, allowing students to register in real time. Overall, the presentation allowed our students to consider how their careers could grow through the industry.”
Recruiter, Heller’s Gas, Inc.
“Recently our team had the opportunity to visit the Schuylkill Technology Center on behalf of GeneratioNext Propane Pros. We met with CDL and HVAC students to talk about the exciting changes in our industry as well as to discuss what makes Heller’s Gas unique. GeneratioNext Propane Pros explained the history and evolving future of the propane industry and allowed our Director of Delivery Operations to present his story of starting as a yard technician and working his way up into his current position. This helped to showcase how there are always many growth opportunities within the propane industry. It was truly a wonderful experience to get to make connections with students and prospective employees. We are very thankful for the chance to share our story and successes, and GeneratioNext Propane Pros made that all possible.”
School Counselor, Central Westmoreland Career Technology Center
