National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC)

Alternative Fuel and Advanced Technology Vehicles Training Courses

This two day course helps participants obtain a solid foundation of information about alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles. Through this course, participants will better understand curriculum flow and gain the ability to discuss different alternative fuel technologies, fuel prices, and how they are affected by national and international events. The rapid increase in fuel prices, coupled with concerns for the environment and air quality, have led many Americans to seek information about alternatives to gasoline, diesel fuel, and other petroleum-based products.
