Course Description:

Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle
Fuel System Inspector
 

 

Learn practical skills in actual shop environments
CNG vehicle cylinders should be inspected every three years or every 36,000 miles. In this two-day hands-on course you will learn how to properly examine the various types of CNG cylinders and installations.


Why Take CNG Vehicle Fuel System Inspector Training?

Today there are more than 25 million natural gas vehicles (NGVs) in use. These vehicles use CNG cylinders and the NGV system components require periodic inspection, which creates a demand for certified inspectors. Current standards require visual inspection once every three years or every 36,000 miles over the life of the container. Good shop practice recommends a more frequent general inspection. The inspector needs to know what to look for, how to visually inspect, and how to determine whether the cylinder is safe.

The continued use of acceptable cylinders and the removal from service of damaged cylinders that do not pass the visual inspection criteria are critical to the safety and well-being of all who may come into contact with NGVs. Done correctly, fuel system inspection will assure a viable, safe future for an industry that provides a cleaner alternative to traditional fuels for transportation.

The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium at West Virginia University has developed a thoroughly researched, instructionally sound, and easily applied training program for CNG fuel system inspection. Participants gain a thorough knowledge of all required inspections, tests and apparatus and inspection procedures applicable to the types of cylinders and fuel systems that will be inspected.

Course Objectives
Taught by certified NAFTC instructors, this two-day course will enable you to:

  • Understand theory, equipment, safety, and good work practices
  • Develop a working knowledge of the types of cylinders and fuel system components used in CNG vehicle systems
  • Visually inspect CNG cylinders and fuel system components for damage and deterioration
  • Describe construction techniques and material types used in CNG cylinder manufacturing
  • Vent and store CNG cylinders safely
  • Recognize various failure models
  • Safely and confidently handle CNG cylinders and fuel lines related to the system
  • Perform required reporting procedures
  • Become a certified CNG Fuel System Inspector by passing the CSA International standardized certification test for cylinder inspection. (CSA International is a recognized certification and standards organization). This course along with study will help prepare you for the certification exam which is available at CSA International


Hands-on activities will provide participants with the opportunity to perform CNG vehicle fuel system inspections themselves on a CNG vehicle.

This course is available to NAFTC member schools as a train-the-trainer upon advance request.
