OIL HEAT TECHNICIAN COURSE

The newest class offered by Granite State Trade School is the oil heat technician course.

This course is certified by NORA, the National Oil Research Alliance.

NORA has three levels of technician training, Gold, Silver and Bronze.

This new 100 hour course is NORA Silver level rated.  NORA standards require a Silver level technician to have the required hours of education, pass the exam, plus three years of field experience certified by the employer.

For those that take the course, pass the exam, and do NOT have the three years experience, they will be awarded the Bronze certificate until they complete the field experience requirement.

NORA Silver is accepted by New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont for various licensing requirements.

Two options to complete 100 hours:

Evening Courses meet twice a week, Mon and Weds 6:pm-8:30pm, for 5 weeks.

After each 25 hour segment, a break is given, then the same schedule resumes for the next 25 hours.  Four segments needed for the Silver level 100 hours.

Course cost is $595 per 25 hour segment, or prepay all 100 hour for $2250

Daytime classes meets once a week on Monday for 14 weeks

Course Cost $ 2250.00

Dates:    Evening classes begin Jan 8th, 2018

STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE OIL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS

Currently New Hampshire has no mandatory oil license requirement, but legislation has been introduced that would institute a licensing requirement.  The NORA Silver course is accepted by New Hampshire to obtain a voluntary oil heat technician license, which ensures automatic licensing should it become required in the future.
