The U.S. Department of Energy has introduced a fleet eTraining course to help fleet drivers and managers learn about flex-fuel vehicles, fueling, and how to locate alternative-fuel stations.

The 15-minute course is intended for anyone with access to a federal fleet vehicle, including drivers, fleet managers, and contractors who operate federal vehicles as a minor portion of their responsibilities. The training is designed to help participants comply with the requirement from Section 701 of the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 2005 to use alternative fuel in flex-fuel vehicles.

Flex-fuel vehicles account for one out of every three vehicles in the entire federal fleet.

The course is accessible online for training on-demand, and a course completion certificate is available.
