Includes Hydrogen, Hydrogen Vehicle & Hydrogen Fleet Awareness Workshop,
Plus There’s a Natural Gas and Propane Fleet Workshop with Ryder on July 30
West Virginia University’s National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium has released its fall schedule for natural gas, electric drive, and hydrogen vehicle training courses.
“These vehicles are becoming increasingly common,” NAFTC says, “and it is important that automotive service technicians, fleet managers, and multiple other audiences, including consumers, learn about alternative fuel vehicles and how they impact our work or lives.”
And, with the support of the Clean Cities-West Virginia Clean State Program, NAFTC is conducting a free, Ryder-hosted Natural Gas and Propane Fleet Workshop on Thursday July 30 at the Holiday Inn & Suites in South Charleston.
Classroom and Hands-On Both
The NAFTC fall schedule includes courses for automotive technicians, including Light-Duty Natural Gas Vehicle Training, Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle Fuel System Inspector Training, and Electric Drive Vehicle Automotive Technician Training. It also includes the Hydrogen, Hydrogen Vehicle, and Hydrogen Fleet Awareness Workshop “for automotive technicians, fleet managers, municipalities, and others interested in understanding hydrogen as a fuel source.”
The NAFTC courses feature a combination of classroom and hands-on training and will be held at NAFTC headquarters in Morgantown, W.Va. Continuing education units from West Virginia University are available for all training classes.
NAFTC Fall Training Schedule:
- Light-Duty Natural Gas Vehicle Training, July 27-29 and October 19-21;
- CNG Fuel System Inspector Training, July 30-31 and October 22-23;
- Electric Drive Vehicle Automotive Technician Training, August 17-21 and November 16-20; and
- Hydrogen, Hydrogen Vehicle, and Hydrogen Fleet Awareness Workshop, September 22.
NAFTC offers customized training too, at customer-designated locations if desired.
