NFPA®'s self-paced online training Alternative Fuel Vehicles Training Program for Emergency Responders teaches emergency responders how to safely deal with emergency situations involving alternative fuel passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, and commercial fleet vehicles. Upon completing the program, students will receive a certificate for their successful completion.

There are presently over 15 million alternative fuel vehicles on American roadways today. To help emergency responders handle the unique challenges presented by these new technology, NFPA has developed the Alternative Fuel Vehicles Training Program. In approximately four hours, this self-paced program effectively trains responders through engaging videos, animations (including 3D animations), simulations, and review exercises.

A built-in learning management system lets you exit the program at any time and return where you left off, so you can maximize time and schedule training around professional demands.
