Project Description

Current Class Schedule

Keeping America Moving

Diesel service technicians and mechanics, including bus and truck mechanics and diesel engine specialists, repair and maintain the diesel engines that power transportation equipment. All courses in the program are taught to NATEF standards so that graduates will be prepared to pass the ASE industry standards test. Students will gain experience in maintaining a set of diesel trucks that are used in the CDL Training Program at UBTech, as well as other compressors and diesel-powered equipment. Nothing is more important to a mechanic than their hand tools. Workers generally have their own tools, and the more experienced workers have spent thousands of dollars on them. Students will be encouraged to purchase their own tools as part of the program, thus improving their employability after graduating.

Graduates will be prepared to seek employment as diesel mechanics or technicians across a variety of fields.
