Propane Autogas Vehicle Technician Training
Learn practical skills in actual shop environments
Propane-powered vehicles present special challenges to the automotive technician. This three-day course includes an overview of propane technology, automotive components, and autogas related systems.
The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) has launched a NEW Propane Autogas Vehicle Technician Training. Recognizing a need for qualified technicians to adapt, service, and maintain these vehicles, the comprehensive course covers topics including propane characteristics, fuel systems, vehicle compatibility, system components, and safety. By the end of the three-day course, participants will have an in-depth understanding of servicing and maintaining these vehicles.
This state-of-the-art training, funded by the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is being offered free at multiple locations across the United States.
This FREE training session is available ONLY to professional automotive technicians currently working in the field who want to enhance their skills and learn more about working with propane autogas vehicles.
This technical training is targeted toward professional, experienced automotive technicians and automotive trainers seeking to learn about propane autogas vehicles.
This course is available to NAFTC member schools and PERC stakeholders as a train-the-trainer upon advance request. This course is NOT an autogas vehicle conversion class, although conversion topics and procedures are discussed.
