NGVi Adds Station Codes and Standards Course to E-Learning Program
The Natural Gas Vehicle Institute (NGVi) has launched its new e-learning course: CNG Fueling Station Codes and Standards. This video-based course is designed for companies interested in or responsible for designing and building natural gas fueling stations, as well as those involved in permitting CNG stations, including code officials or state and local fire marshals.
Participants learn about the applicable national codes and standards pertaining to CNG fueling stations, including NFPA 52, NFPA 30A, NFPA 70, NFPA 496, American Society of Mechanical Engineers Sections VII, VIII, IX, X and XI, ANSI B31, ANSI/CSA NGV1, 2, 3 and 4 and SAE J1616.
CNG fueling stations use different design and construction practices that necessitate different building materials and unique components. To ensure safety during both construction and operation, CNG fueling stations must be designed to meet the requirements of a number of codes and safety standards.
CNG Fueling Station Codes and Standards E-Learning is approximately two hours in length. The course is self-paced with a quick knowledge check at the end of the course. Individuals who complete the course and successfully pass the knowledge check receive an NGVi certificate of completion.
“We are excited to add this class to our e-learning program,” said NGVi Executive Director Leo Thomason. “It is a great tool for anybody who wants learn about major fire, mechanical, electrical and building code applications to the design and construction of CNG stations and to be able to fully assimilate this sometimes perplexing information.”
