The Diesel Truck Technology program prepares students as entry-level technicians with the latest information on diagnosis, repair procedures, preventive maintenance, and necessary safety applications in diesel technology. The course prepares students to take the voluntary mechanic certification test (ASE) in heavy-duty trucks. Graduates work as tune-up, brakes, transmission and refrigeration technicians; diesel truck repair and fleet maintenance technicians; service writing technicians; and sales and service representatives.
Typical employers of diesel truck technicians are truck, farm, and earth-moving equipment dealerships; trucking, power generation, and construction companies; truck service centers; engine repair/machine shops; truck equipment distributors; independent service garages; automotive parts manufacturers; sales representatives; and insurance companies.
In addition to tuition, students are responsible for a testing fee based on current industrial testing rates that is charged at the beginning of the senior’s last semester of school. This fee covers industry specific testing.
It is not required to tell the instructor if you are pregnant but it is highly recommended because of the lifting and other requirements of the program that may jeopardize the health of the mother and fetus.
