Ryder Launches NGV Training Program across North America
On Wednesday, Ryder announced that it has launched a new online NGV maintenance training program for its entire North American maintenance network. Over 6,000 maintenance and service employees across Ryder’s 800 maintenance facilities will be trained on NGV technology. The program will provide the company’s technician workforce with knowledge of all NGV platforms and configurations. This program supplements existing customized NGV training completed by employees who are already fueling and performing maintenance on NGVs operating in customers’ fleets. “As natural gas vehicle solutions continue to gain acceptance across North America, now is an appropriate time to ensure Ryder’s technician workforce at every facility is aware of the basic requirements for servicing the new technology,” said Ryder Vice President of Maintenance & Quality Operations, Melvin Kirk. Ryder has more than 30 million miles of experience, 14 NGV maintenance facilities and 260 NGV trained technicians.
