Research Alliance’s (NORA) ongoing commitment to technician
education and to enable access to educational materials, it has just
released its Technicians Manual for Liquid Heating Fuels

According to NORA’s president Michael Devine, “Making high quality
learning resources available to liquid fuel heating technicians is
one of NORA’s highest priorities. Whether used as a stand-alone
resource or in conjunction with NORA’s technician certification
program, the manual and its audio component can bring this material
to an even wider range of students and technicians."
