NAFTC earns award for autogas training program

October 14, 2016 By    

naftc-logoThe National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) earned its fifth National Excellence in Training Award from the Automotive Training Managers Council for its Propane Autogas Vehicle Technician Training.

NAFTC developed the training program through funding from the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC). The program was designed to educate, train and prepare pre- and in-service automotive technicians on the field of propane vehicle diagnostics and repair.

“Many fleets are turning to propane autogas vehicles to lower operating costs and improve local air quality,” says Bill Davis, NAFTC director. “NAFTC and PERC were able to develop a partnership and create a course that will benefit automotive technicians across the country who work on these vehicles. Having so many propane autogas industry personnel work with NAFTC provided the technical support to make this happen.”

The Propane Autogas Vehicle Technician Training program is a three-day course that focuses on servicing and maintaining propane autogas vehicles safely. NAFTC will receive its award at the Automotive Training Managers Council annual reception Nov. 2 in Las Vegas.

The Automotive Training Managers Council is an organization founded by automative training professionals to promote the advancement of training and professional development within the automotive service industry.
