Rise in Alt Fuels Prompts Training Network

Joanna Schroeder

Several of the top alternative fuel experts in the U.S. have joined forces to form the Alternative Fuel Training Network, launched this month on the website AFVtraining.net. With a rise in alternative fuel vehicles on the road coupled with a rise in biofuels and biofuel tankeralternative fuels at the pump, a need has been created for professional alternative fuel fleet training.

“For the first time, America is experiencing a meaningful shift in our energy supply,” said Greg Zilberfarb, a nationally recognized alternative fuels expert who led the formation of the consortium. “We’re on the cusp of a quantum leap as a nation, which creates a need for fleets to learn how to effectively implement alternative fuels such as hydrogen, natural gas, propane and biodiesel.”

The consortium makes training available for mechanics, drivers and station operators. It presents a unique opportunity for a fleet to find quality training on the primary alternative fuels in one place, at a reasonable cost. All trainers are nationally recognized experts in their fields.

“Our trainers are hand-picked professionals who are the best in the business,” Zilberfarb added.  “We come to your site at your convenience, and are dedicated to helping your fleet with this important transition at an affordable price.”
