U.S. national centre offers Autogas training

The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC), with support from the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), held a three-day Autogas training expo in Florida, giving technicians a chance to learn how to service Autogas vehicles.

The event gave the trainers a chance to see and learn how to operate the Autogas training tools in NAFTC’s arsenal. These tools give technicians the opportunity to work hands-on with alternative fuel vehicles and can be used in the classroom to train the next generation of auto mechanics.

Autogas is growing in popularity and, according to Stuart Flatow, vice president of safety and training at PERC, in order for the Autogas market to be successful, there must be enough skilled technicians who can troubleshoot, diagnose and maintain Autogas systems. If technical colleges can turn out more young mechanics who are equipped to service Autogas vehicles, the fuel may look more appealing to those looking to invest, thereby giving both industries a boost.

“Events such as the PERC-funded NAFTC Expo and technician training classes provide an opportunity for networking amongst several Autogas stakeholders and allowed representatives from technical automotive schools, aftermarket organisations and LPG professionals to work together to identify needs and solve issues that will help expand the Autogas market,” Flatow said.
