    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.

    Please Note: NFPA is now offering this online course free of charge to the US Fire Service.

    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.

    The dynamic online curriculum covers:

    • Introduction to alternative fuel vehicle concepts including, electric, hybrid, fuel cell, bio-diesel and gaseous fuels such as CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), and Propane.
    • The program also covers identification techniques, immobilization and power-down procedures, extrication challenges, recommended practices for dealing with hazards such as fires and submersion, incidents involving charging/refueling stations, and more

    These concepts are taught through the use of highly-interactive learning modules which include videos, graphics, 3D animations, simulations, and data review exercises, and you can repeat any section on demand.

    Upon completion of the four modules you should be able to:

    • Safely conduct emergency scene size-up and management
    • Identify an alternative fuel vehicle
    • Effectively immobilize the vehicle for scene safety
    • Disable the vehicle's High Voltage and SRS systems
    • Conduct occupant rescue more safely
    • Execute AFV recovery and disposal

    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.

    Demonstrate your proficiency in course content by completing a series of data reviews at the conclusion of each training module and final scenario room activities. Pass these reviews and earn your Certificate of Educational Achievement from the NFPA.

     

    Who Will Benefit:
    Anyone who may respond to incidents involving alternative fuel vehicles, including:
    fire service and law enforcement, emergency medical service technicians, and tow and salvage personnel.
