The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium hosted a Business and Professional Development Meeting July 15-17 in Sanford, Fla.

During that time, the NAFTC unveiled the First Responder Safety Training train-the-trainer courses that have been developed as part of the Clean Cities Learning Program and the Advanced Electric Drive Vehicle Education Program, both of which are funded by grants from the U.S. Department of Energy.

NAFTC Executive Director Al Ebron, Business Operations Specialist Laura Tinney and Curriculum Developer Eric Underwood participated in the meeting. Assistant Director – Curriculum and Training Mark Olance and National Instructor Mark Schmidt conducted the beta test of the first responder curriculum, which promotes the need for properly trained emergency personnel because of the increase in the number of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles on the roadways today.
