The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) is once again supporting the ACT Expo as an endorsing sponsor. This is the third year the NAFTC has endorsed the event. Also, the NAFTC is partnering this year with ACT Expo, as part of a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Cities to deliver a webinar series and other sessions, as part of the conference.
ACT Expo is coordinated by Gladstein, Neandross, and Associates, a consulting firm specializing in market development for low emission and alternative fuel vehicle technologies, infrastructure, and fuels. The event will take place May 2-5 in Long Beach, California.
“ACT has evolved into a major conference for alternative fuel vehicles,” said NAFTC Director Bill Davis. “A large number of Clean Cities coordinators are there, in addition to a major number of fleet personnel. If you’re interested in transportation other than crude oil derivatives, this is the place to go.”
As part of the endorsement, the NAFTC is conducting two complimentary webinars for the ACT Expo. “Preparing Your Shop for Alternative Fuel Vehicles” was held on March 3 (recording here), and “Comprehensive Training for Alternative Fuel Vehicle Deployment: Internal & External Stakeholders” will be held on April 7. The upcoming webinar will cover the training needs for fleet managers, technicians, fueling crews, first responders, and recovery and recycling specialists; possible AFV codes and standards and how they may impact stakeholders; and best practices for providing AFV training for impacted stakeholders.
The ACT Expo 2016 event will include keynote speakers, plenary and breakout sessions, networking events, a ride-and-drive event, and off-site technical tours.
The NAFTC will also conduct a seminar for Clean Cities coordinators during the ACT Expo entitled “AFV Safety Training: Serving New Audiences beyond First Responders.” This presentation will include information about the curricula and supporting materials being developed as part of the AFV Curricula and Outreach Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities.
