Filling Critical Gaps through Innovative Cradle-to-Grave Training

This project leveraged existing alternative fuel vehicle curricula that was previously developed by the National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Consortium (NAFTC) or FS Circle to provide training to fire marshals, code officials, mechanics, and technicians. The training focused on issues related to compressed natural gas, propane, and electricity and filled training needs across a 4-state area in the South Central U.S. The project team held a total of 30 training classes with over 350 attendees using grant funds. A Future Action Plan to guide future alternative fuel training was also developed to assist others with successfully deploying future trainings.
