About the NAFTC

Founded in 1992, the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) is the only nationwide training organization dedicated to promoting, supporting, and expanding the use of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles in an effort to improve air quality and decrease U.S. dependence on foreign oil. Headquartered at West Virginia University, the NAFTC provides Training with Impact through its experienced instructors and real-world facilities.

The NAFTC Provides:

Curriculum Development

NAFTC curriculum is developed based on the most up-to-date industry information. Before being released, it undergoes a rigorous examination by a review team of professional automotive instructors and technicians consisting of NAFTC members and industry experts.

Training: Courses & Workshops

Over twenty NAFTC courses and workshops are available on alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles.

Education & Outreach

The NAFTC conducts education and outreach at the local and national level. On the national level, National AFV Day Odyssey is the NAFTC’s premier event. It is the largest nationwide educational awareness event ever conducted for alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles.

What Our Members Are Saying:

“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

“Although alternative fuel and hybrid powered vehicles drive exactly the same as regular vehicles, there are some significant differences that maintenance technicians and public safety officials need to be trained on … like how to safely work with higher voltage batteries and fuels that react differently than gasoline in case of spills or leakage if the vehicle is in an accident. The expert training that the NAFTC provides is extremely important.”

—Dennis A. Smith, Director, U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Program

“The NAFTC does a tremendous job with alternative fuels education and training. Their programs are well written and easily received.“

—Chris Peterson, Toyota Service Training Supervisor and Advanced Electric Drive Vehicle Education Program Advisory Committee Member
