The Propane Education & Research Council funded the development of propane autogas training for vehicle technicians in partnership with the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC). Technicians are invited to attend the training at no cost.
The three-day, comprehensive course covers propane characteristics, fuel systems, vehicle compatibility, system components, and safety. Participants will walk away with an in-depth understanding of servicing and maintaining propane autogas vehicles, plus a free copy of the new propane autogas technician training manual.

Good news: Propane autogas facilities don’t have special requirements beyond those for traditional facilities. However, if you’re responsible for servicing or converting propane autogas vehicles, you should become familiar with the facility design requirements that support a safe work environment.
When the time does come for purging or evacuating an autogas fuel tank, it’s important to be familiar with the fueling systems and follow all precautionary safety requirements.
