NAFTC launches advanced electric drive vehicle curriculum for high schools

National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium is on a mission to properly introduce new advanced electric drive vehicles to the people who will service them right where automotive education begins – in the nation’s high schools.

Gene Coulson, the executive director of the Office of Career and Technical Innovation for West Virginia's Department of Education, allowed state teachers to participate in the program and introduced the pilot program for the upcoming school year.

In South Carolina, the NAFTC worked with Benjamin T. Martin, an education associate for the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Program in the South Carolina Department of Education.

After this year's pilot efforts, the NAFTC will make adjustments to the curriculum based upon its findings and participant recommendations, and then the high school program will become available nationwide.
