The Natural Gas Vehicle Institute has received certification from the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence for the companys training programs.
NGVi says it's the first and only ASE-certified CASE provider that specializes in training for the natural gas vehicle industry.
In late October, a National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) evaluation team visited NGVis corporate headquarters and performed a detailed on-site evaluation of the companys training development process and curriculum, leading to the certification.
To receive certification, training companies must go through a rigorous and extensive review of their training and student assessment methods, validity of the curriculum and material, administrative processes, and instructor qualifications.
ASE CASE certification is administered by NATEF. Because of the stringent requirements, only about 50 U.S. companies have achieved this certification.
NGVis training programs deliver up-to-date information on a wide range of topics, including natural gas vehicle and technician safety, CNG fueling system inspections, CNG fueling station sizing, design, operation and maintenance, and overall NGV fleet management. They focus on the practical "how-to" procedures and industry best practices.
