Clean Cities

Cur­tis Mar­tin, Ante­lope Val­ley Clean Cities Coor­di­na­tor, will be con­duct­ing the Alter­na­tive Fuels Learn­ing Pro­gram train­ing at Rio Hon­do Com­mu­ni­ty Col­lege in Whit­ti­er, Calif., with train­ing part­ner Pro­fes­sor John Frala. Mar­tin will be con­duct­ing the last Train-The-Train­er work­shop for Clean Cities Coor­di­na­tors on Dec. 11, and the gen­er­al stakeholder/public train­ing will be con­duct­ed on Dec. 12 by Frala. This pro­gram is fund­ed through US Dept. of Ener­gy and devel­oped by the Nation­al Alter­na­tive Fuels Train­ing Con­sor­tium (NAFTC), in con­junc­tion with West Vir­ginia State Uni­ver­si­ty (WVSU,) which will be present for this train­ing ses­sion. Those attend­ing the Train-The-Train­er ses­sion will be cer­ti­fied to go out and repro­duce this train­ing in their regions. Clean Cities Coor­di­na­tors across the coun­try are high­ly encour­aged to attend.

The NAFTC Clean Cities Learn­ing Pro­gram will sup­port the mis­sion of the DOE Vehi­cle Tech­nolo­gies Pro­gram by rais­ing aware­ness and fos­ter­ing a greater under­stand­ing of alter­na­tive fuels and advanced tech­nol­o­gy vehi­cles. The pro­gram pro­vides Clean Cities Coali­tions, and oth­er stake­hold­ers, with state-of-the-art cur­ric­u­la and train­ing, out­reach and edu­ca­tion mate­ri­als, and a con­cen­trat­ed mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions plan, includ­ing resources avail­able from an Online Tool­box. It also pro­vides aware­ness and tech­ni­cal edu­ca­tion to encour­age con­sumer deci­sions to adopt vehi­cles and fuels that will sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the con­sump­tion of petro­le­um-based fuels. The two ses­sions will run from 8am to 5pm each day. For more infor­ma­tion con­tact Cur­tis Mar­tin at
