The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) is a pioneer and national leader in developing, managing, and promoting programs and activities that desire to cure America’s addiction to oil, lead to energy independence, and encourage the greater use of cleaner transportation. The NAFTC is the only nationwide alternative fuel vehicle and advanced technology vehicle training organization in the United States.
The basic NAFTC Train-the-Trainers courses include classroom time to learn fundamentals, videos, discussions, pre- and post-tests, and lab/shop activities. When in Morgantown, West Virginia, a multi-bay automotive lab is used during training for demonstration, skills training, diagnostics, emissions testing and maintenance issues. A Repair Grade (RG) Dynamometer is used to demonstrate important automotive concepts as they relate to alternative fuels. New modules are developed to address specific topics in the evolution of the AFV industry.
