In December automotive instructors from the Pulaski Technical College visited the National Alternative Fuels training Consortium (NAFTC) to kick off their alternative fuel vehicle training as a National Training Center member.
They attended a Light-Duty Natural Gas Vehicle train-the-trainer course and a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fuel System Inspector train-the-trainer course.
This training will allow the school to launch a specialized automotive training program for natural gas vehicles in North Little Rock, AR which has a thriving natural gas industry.
Alternative fuel vehicles such as those that run on CNG are continuing to grow in popularity in the United States. Consequently, there is a need for technicians qualified in using and maintaining their unique fueling and propulsion systems. These trainings were designed to train the instructors who will teach automotive technicians how to inspect and service these vehicles.
Pulaski Technical College is one of nearly 50 National and Associate Training Centers who provide the award winning, state-of-the-art NAFTC curricula and training.
As a consortium member, Pulaski Technical College has access to train-the-trainer classes on numerous alternative fuel vehicle topics for automotive technicians. For more information about joining the NAFTC, visit MyNAFTC.
