Keeping Trucks Safe and Ready for the Long Haul
From the food we eat to the clothes we wear to the products we buy; trucks are used to bring us the majority of the supplies that keep our society running. With the United Stated Bureau of Labor statistics predicting an 8% increase in Diesel Service Technician jobs in the next 10 years, this essential industry is ripe for newcomers. If you enjoy work that keeps you physically active and mentally sharp and you thrive in a hands-on learning environment, consider entering this degree program where you can learn advanced servicing techniques for trucks, buses, tractor-trailer systems, and off-road equipment in just two years.
Students will learn to diagnose and repair the various systems in medium and heavy trucks including electrical systems, HVAC, drivetrain systems and more. Courses are designed to prepare students to take the industry-recognized Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Medium/Heavy Truck Service certifications (T1-T8) exams. The courses are both aligned and in compliance with the Automotive Service Excellence Education Foundation (ASEEF) to provide industry-certified quality of instruction and accreditation. We offer two professional certificates in Medium and Heavy Truck Technology as well for those looking to gain a practical skillset and quick entry into the industry.
This program will be located in our state-of-the-art facilities at the Career and Advanced Technology Center (CATC).
