11/4-11/6 FREE Propane Vehicle Training

Join the DFW Clean Cities Coalition and National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 – Thursday, November 6, 2014 in Fort Worth for FREE Propane Vehicle Training for LPG technicians. This Beta course was developed in partnership between the NAFTC and the Propane Education & Research Council.

There is a demand for LPG technicians in Texas and across the U.S. A LPG certified technician needs to know everything that is currently applicable to LPG technology, along with understanding the advances in engine management and emission controls that affect the design and servicing of LPG systems.

Taught by certified NAFTC instructors, this three-day course will enable you to:

  • Know the basics, properties, and characteristics of LPG
  • Learn the concepts of pressure, density, and volume in describing, measuring, and handling LPG
  • List personnel and shop safety procedures and describe the appropriate responses to common emergencies such as fire, gas leakage, and collision
  • Describe the components of an LPG fuel system both vapor and LPI and explain how each operates
  • Explain the operation of the electronic control module (ECM) and the components that connect to it
  • Explain the combustion process and calculate the correct air-fuel ratio to achieve best power, lowest emissions, and greatest fuel economy
  • Describe Otto and Diesel cycle engines and explain how fuel management differs with LPG

Attendees will be provided a training manual and NAFTC certification upon completion of the course.
