AUSTIN — Starting today, Oct. 2, certification classes and exams are no longer available at the Railroad Commission of Texas’ Austin Alternative Fuels Training Facility at 6506 Bolm Road. Classes and exams will resume Oct. 21 at the new Austin training facility located at 4044 Promontory Point.

Contact information for RRC’s Alternative Fuels training remains the same at: 512-463-2682 and training-exams@rrc.texas.gov .

“The new training facility will provide more than double the space for students with two classrooms instead of the one classroom we had at the former site,” said April Richardson, RRC Alternative Fuels Safety Director. “Our student capacity will increase from 21 to 53 students at the new site.”

RRC’s Alternative Fuels section protects public safety by overseeing operators’ compliance with Commission rules on liquefied petroleum gas (propane) compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Companies installing, transporting, dispensing and selling alternative fuels must be licensed with the Commission. Individuals performing activities with alternative fuels must be certified by the Commission and all alternative fuel installations must be installed in accordance with the Commission rules.
