Morgantown, W.Va. — In celebration of February as National Career and Technical Education Month, the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium and the Monongalia County Technical Education Center formalized their long-time collaboration with a signing ceremony of a partnership resolution. The signing took place during a general advisory council meeting Friday, Feb. 25 at 8 a.m. at MTEC.

NAFTC executive director Al Ebron and MTEC principal John George signed a resolution recognizing the career and technical school as an Associate Training Center member of the consortium.

“The NAFTC is excited to partner with MTEC, a new local ally in the nationwide quest for cleaner air and energy independence,” Ebron said. “This is a great opportunity for West Virginia University, through the NAFTC, to support MTEC as they implement training in their school for new automotive vehicle technologies.”

The NAFTC is a program of the National Research Center for Coal and Energy.
