What about a career in Diesel Equipment repair?
The Diesel Technology program offers the appeal of a wide variety of challenges as you learn to diagnose and solve diesel equipment problems on commercial vehicles. Our students begin by learning theory of operation for modern diesel-powered equipment. You will soon progress to basic maintenance procedures and minor repairs. Advanced training in this comprehensive program includes diagnostic skills for many vehicle systems including those that are electronically controlled.
You can look forward to working in a state-of-the-art lab and guidance from highly-qualified instructors who frequently attend industry training. Our courses keep lecture and classroom study to a minimum, emphasizing a "hands-on" approach to training. An active advisory committee made up of local employers assures that the program's curriculum remains current. An internship is included in our program plan.
