Goal Is to ‘Open Doors to More Career Paths’
New Jersey-based Lincoln Educational Services Corp is promoting a new compressed natural gas training curriculum to be offered via the Lincoln Tech campus in Denver. “The enhanced curriculum will increase graduates’ skill sets and open doors to more career paths in their job search,” the company says.
Alt fuels like CNG “are the environmentally-friendly future of the diesel and transportation industry,” Lincoln Educational Services president and CEO Scott Shaw said in a release.
“Our partners in the diesel and truck industry are increasingly turning to these alternative fuels in order to increase the efficiency of their fleets and become more environmentally conscientious,” he said.
‘Preparing for the Future’ of CNG
“The versatile alternative fuels industry has become critical to the nation’s economic future and Lincoln Tech aims to provide the skilled technicians to sustain it.”
“Lincoln students are training and preparing for the future of compressed natural gas fuel systems,” added Steve Buchenot, Lincoln Tech’s group president.
“Colorado is one of the leading states in this field,” he said. “Based on industry advisor comments, we expect that they will be sought by fleets, manufacturers and vehicle service providers thanks to their advanced knowledge in this expanding field.”
Through the new Diesel & Truck with Alternative Fuel Technology training program, Lincoln Tech students in Denver will receive hands-on training with diesel engines, brakes, fuel systems and more, the provider says. “They will build skills for disassembling and reassembling engines, inspecting all system components, applying safety and maintenance procedures for CNG fuel systems, and working with the science behind compressed natural gas.”
Lincoln Tech’s Denver campus is accredited by ACCSC, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.
