Last month, the Lawson State Community College Automotive Division hosted a National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium Propane Autogas Vehicle Technician Training in partnership with Alabama Clean Fuels. The college was selected to host the event based on the school’s commitment to alternative fuel vehicle education, and the use of propane autogas in their surrounding area.
Lawson State has been a member of the NAFTC since 2008, and several of the school’s instructors have attended electric vehicle, propane, and first responder trainings with the consortium.

Lawson State’s Assistant Dean of Workforce Development, Tommy Hobbs commented, “The College offers students an exceptional opportunity to obtain an education of high quality built on the basis of solid academic and career programs. We continue to see a growing need for alternative fuel vehicle training for automotive technicians and are committed to fulfilling this need through our Alabama Center for Automotive Excellence.”
Lawson State’s Automotive Service Program and Automotive Technician Program are National Automotive Technician Education Foundation accredited.
