Dear Friends:

I am pleased to announce that the NAFTC recently received a Training Excellence Award from the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC). This honor was bestowed upon the Consortium’s Overview of Biodiesel course, which is also endorsed by the National Biodiesel Board. The annual award is presented by the ATMC to providers of quality automotive/truck technical training. Additional information about the NAFTC’s achievement can be found in the article “NAFTC Wins Training Excellence Award.”

The NAFTC is also happy to deliver the news that the DOE Clean Cities coalitions collectively displaced the equivalent of 375 million gallons of gasoline in 2006, according to a recent report from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Perhaps most impressive is that 71 percent of the displaced gasoline was attributed to the use of alternative fuel vehicles! More information on this achievement can be found in the story “Clean Cities Program Saves 375 Million Gallons of Gas in 2006.”

In addition to its gasoline displacement success, Clean Cities held its annual Coordinator Leadership Retreat in September, which the NAFTC attended. Both myself and Assistant Director – Communications Judy Moore attended the event held at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. You can learn more by reading the story “NAFTC Participates in Clean Cities National Retreat.”

Please contact us to learn more about the NAFTC’s award-winning training or if we can be of service to you in any way.


Al Ebron
NAFTC Executive Director
