Default Timing belts????

Hey guys im a mechanic in training and trying to obtain as much knowledge as possible before starting my career at the dealership.
Does anyone know where i can get an updated list of interference engines? I found some older lists but looking for up to atleast 2010. Alldata at my school does not seem to tell you anything about it.
Thanx

Useful resource though the one car I know about for sure are Volvo 240s from 1976-1984 2.1 liter engines. These cars are not interferance engines. I know this because I have broken one timing belt due to a lubrication failure.( the oil passage to the cam became plugged due to coking of the oil. The passage is too narrow and passes by the #1 exhaust valve. The engine configuration other than displacement did not change until at least 1984 and this feature may not have changed until much later. This leads me to believe that other mistakes have been made with this compilation. Timing belt service intervals look to be reasonable however. 50,000 miles is a long time.
