ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) — The Western Wyoming Community College board of trustees has approved a proposal to add an alternative-fueled vehicles certificate program.

Students at the college in Rock Springs would have access to a Toyota Prius electric-gasoline hybrid car and a Chevrolet Suburban converted to a compressed natural gas vehicle.

WWCC President Karla Leach says automotive program students will have much better chances of getting jobs if they have a certificate in alternative fuels.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports that the proposal must be approved by the Wyoming Community College Commission.
