NAFTC Propane Autogas Training Sessions

The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium is offering a free, three-day training course designed to give automotive service technicians an in-depth look at servicing and maintaining propane-autogas-powered vehicles. The NAFTC launched the course to help fill a need for qualified technicians who can adapt, service and maintain the alternative fuel systems.

Course materials provided include a participant manual and program certificate. Instruction will mix classroom work with practical exercises and hands-on shop activities so technicians exit the course with an expansive knowledge of propane characteristics; bi-fuel, dual fuel and dedicated fuel systems; vehicle compatibility and conversion; system components; and personnel and shop safety.

Training is offered at Oklahoma City Community College April 25 to 27; Blossman Autogas Fuel and Research Center in Asheville, N.C., May 24 to 26; and June 14 to 16 at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany, Ore.
