Program Overview

Diesel Technology is a practical and in-depth technical program designed to provide you with the skills necessary to successfully gain employment as a diesel technician. The majority of the program is devoted to training that is necessary to attain employment in a farm, industrial, or truck dealership. The curriculum is also structured to allow you to seek job opportunities in industrial/heavy equipment, general diesel repair or as a farm mechanic.

You are exposed to a wide variety of situations, including use of electromechanical testing equipment, diesel calibration instruments, and a variety of farm power machinery. You will study all phases of heavy-duty truck and tractor repair, including electrical systems, various transmissions, suspensions, braking, and other related areas. Instruction will also include complete engine overhaul, diesel, gasoline, and natural gas fuel systems, hydraulic systems and air-conditioning. In addition, the program offers courses in biodiesel technology.

As repair methods change, the curriculum is continually updated to provide instruction on the latest tools, equipment and new job procedures as well as instruction on the older models and methods.
