Eight-Hour Class Fees
Any eight-hour AFRED class taken to fulfill a Railroad Commission management- or employee-level or continuing education requirement is free of charge for Railroad Commission certificate holders who have paid the annual renewal fee.
The fee for an eight-hour class is $75 per person for new LP certificate applicants, for LPG certificate holders who are required to comply with first-year training requirements and for uncertified individuals, including individuals whose certificates have expired.
Annual Certification Renewal Fees
AFRED mails renewal notices to each LPG licensee, and to each certificate holder who is not employed by a licensed company, on or before March 1 each year.
The fee to renew an LPG certification(s) each year is $35, payable by May 31. Applicants for certification who pass an initial examination between March 1 and May 31 have until May 31 of the following year to renew their certificates.
To maintain your LPG certification after you retire or leave the industry, you must continue to pay the $35 certification renewal fee. In such cases, please make sure the Railroad Commission knows your current mailing address.
No fees are associated with issuing a replacement Railroad Commission certification card.
Annual certification renewals postmarked after May 31 are subject to a $20 late fee.
LPG certified individuals who transfer their employment from one licensee to another are required to submit LPG Form 16A, "Certified Employee Transfer of Certification," and pay a fee of $10.00.
Outside Trainers' Fees
Fees for classes offered by Commission-approved outside instructors are set by the individual or organization conducting the class. The Railroad Commission does not establish or approve such fees.
