    Online / Virtual Event in partnership with NGVi

    The continued support of our Louisiana natural gas fleets is important to us at Louisiana Clean Fuels. As such, LCF is working with NGVi to offer online and virtual Natural Gas Vehicle training within Louisiana to our stakeholder natural gas fleets. We encourage sponsors to participate to help lower the cost of the course for LCF stakeholder fleets. The certification exam will be held at the end of the week and is optional.
