Lincoln Educational Services Corporation in the US State of Colorado, a specialized technical training provider, is to begin offering training in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) systems as part of an expanded diesel career training program at its Lincoln Tech campus in Denver. The implementation of this course is in response to the growing demand for cleaner transportation.
Lincoln says the enhanced curriculum will increase graduates’ skill sets and open doors to more career paths in their job search. “Alternative fuel systems like CNG are the environmentally-friendly future of the diesel and transportation industry,” says Lincoln’s President and CEO Scott Shaw.
“Our partners in the diesel and truck industry are increasingly turning to these alternative fuels in order to increase the efficiency of their fleets and become more environmentally conscientious. The versatile alternative fuels industry has become critical to the nation’s economic future and Lincoln Tech aims to provide the skilled technicians to sustain it”, Shaw added.
This demand for cleaner technology is dramatically changing how diesel trucks, buses and other machines operate. “Lincoln students are training and preparing for the future of compressed natural gas fuel systems,” says Steve Buchenot, Lincoln Tech’s Group President. “Based on industry advisor comments, we expect that they will be sought by fleets, manufacturers and vehicle service providers thanks to their advanced knowledge in this expanding field.”
Through the Diesel & Truck with Alternative Fuel Technology training program, students will build skills for disassembling and reassembling engines, inspecting all system components, applying safety and maintenance procedures for CNG fuel systems, and working with the science behind compressed natural gas.
The Denver, CO campus is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
