    Why Propane Autogas Training:  As the number of propane autogas vehicles grows, so does the need for qualified technicians to service and maintain them.

    What Training Covers:  This entry-level course covers propane characteristics, fuel systems, vehicle compatibility, system components, and safety. By the end of the three-day course, participants will have an in-depth understanding of servicing and maintaining these vehicles.

    Training attendees will work with the ATech Training Bi-Fuel Engine Performance Trainer.  The training unit allows students to see the workings of a bi-fuel vehicle running on propane autogas and gasoline, from fuel tank to injectors, and to diagnose faults placed in the system by the class instructor through both electronic and mechanical means.

    Please note: this is not a propane autogas conversion course, although the course does cover conversion topics and procedures.
