Creating an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Training Network for Florida
The Creating an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Training Network for Florida project will establish an alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) training network for the state of Florida that adapts safety and technical training based on existing curricula for local needs. This project will establish training on electric drive, CNG and propane vehicles for first responders, college instructors, tow-truck operators, and salvage/recycling operators. Hands-on training will be supported with vehicles provided by the National Association of Fleet Managers. The project intends to integrate first responder training into standard curriculum in partnership with the Florida Department of Education and the State Fire Marshall.
