What Our Members Are Saying:

“Ohio Technical College is proud to be a member of the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium. We have positioned OTC to be on the cutting edge of future technology in order to deliver the necessary technical and career skills to our students. The state-of-the-art curricula and training opportunities we receive as a member of the NAFTC are a critical part of that success.”

“With gas prices as they are and the large vehicles that the American society is used to driving, we must do something to offset the fuel prices, clean the environment, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. I believe alternate fuels is the answer. The University of Northwestern Ohio, with the help of the NAFTC, will be able to provide qualified technicians to fill the demand.”
—Dr. Jeff Jarvis, President, University of Northwestern Ohio

“Being a member of the NAFTC has given us the opportunity to conduct AFV training across the United States and even internationally. The NAFTC has been a valuable partner for our students, faculty, and community.”
—Matt Gotschall, Ph.D., Campus President, Central Community College, Columbus, Nebraska

New Member Testimonial:

When Yuba College started thinking about implementing alternative fuel courses into the automotive program, we started checking around and doing research to find the best option. We looked around for two years at different groups that we thought could provide the services we needed. Ed Davis, Dean of Business, Social Science & Humanities, Career Technical Education, at Yuba, met Al Ebron, NAFTC Executive Director, at a conference in Anaheim and the connection was made. What the NAFTC offers plugged right into the Yuba program. Joining the NAFTC has been great because Yuba has been able to do things that we normally could not do. The curricula, training, and other services the NAFTC provides, especially the first responder program, were exactly what was needed to complement and expand the Yuba College programs. Becoming an NAFTC National Training Center has moved Yuba into a new and exciting direction.

—Mike Morse, Professor, Automotive Technology, Yuba College
