Welcome to the Workforce Training Hub

At the Columbia-Willamette Clean Cities Coalition (CWCC), we're dedicated to building a cleaner, more sustainable future through the advancement of clean transportation technologies. We understand that one of the key drivers of this transformation is a skilled and knowledgeable workforce.

 

Our Workforce Training offerings are designed to equip individuals and organizations with the tools needed to excel in the field of owning, operating, and maintaining advanced alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) and infrastructure technology. We partner with industry leaders with accredited training to provide our members with online and hands-on training opportunities required to thrive in today’s rapidly evolving clean transportation industry. 

TRADITIONAL AFV TRAINING AVAILABLE

We offer tank maintenance and technician certification courses for:

  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles
