1 Comment

Biodiesel Training 1NW Biofuels Association held the  first community college technical biodiesel training for diesel mechanics in the Northwest.  Biodiesel Training 2On June 13, 2008, over 50 heavy-duty diesel mechanics at Bates Technical College (Tacoma, WA) learned about biodiesel - from the basics to detailed technical information related to specific diesel engine manufacturers.  In attendance were students from a variety of heavy-duty diesel classes as well as the instructors for the program. 
"We found the training to be very educational and opened our eyes to using alternative fuels." - Ray Shjerven, Diesel Engine Instructor
