‘Convenience, Cost-Effectiveness and Flexibility Were Factors’

The Las Vegas-based Natural Gas Vehicle Institute has launched its first e-learning course, offering NGV Technician and Fleet Operations Safety Training via an interactive learning management system, “providing students with a convenient way of learning independently and at their own pace.”

NGVi2013-525highNGVi describes its NGV Technician and Fleet Operations Safety Training as “the foundational course for every natural gas vehicle technician.

“Like its classroom equivalent, the e-learning course provides students with fundamental information they need to both understand and safely work on and around CNG and LNG vehicles,” NGVi says.

“E-learning provides a more accessible and convenient means to deliver this important content,” NGVi VP and general manager Annalloyd Thomason said in a release.


‘More Flexible’

“Convenience, cost-effectiveness and flexibility were factors used when NGVi considered the e-learning format for this popular course,” she said. “The nature of the e-learning format – with its 24/7 availability – makes it more flexible for technicians to obtain and fit training into their demanding schedules.”

NGVi’s NGV Fleet Operations Safety E-Learning course is approximately two hours in length, organized into eight modules. “The course is self-paced with a quick knowledge check following each module,” with a final exam at the end. Individuals who complete the course, and pass the exam, receive an NGVi certificate of completion, NGVi says.
