Topic: New Fuels and Advanced Mobility
The course is intended for design engineers, installation technicians, and quality assurance teams. This course helps participants obtain a solid foundation of information about alternative fuels, alternative fuel vehicles, and advanced technology vehicles. Through this course, participants gain the ability to discuss different alternative fuel technologies, fuel prices, and how they are affected by national and international events. Unstable fuel prices, coupled with concerns for the environment and air quality, have led many Americans to seek information about alternatives to gasoline, diesel fuel, and other petroleum-based products.
