Students enrolled in the Diesel Technology Program will be trained in the repair and maintenance of
heavy equipment, such as farm equipment, industrial equipment and heavy-duty trucks. An
increasing demand for mechanics in this field is due to the growth in diesel engines used in everyday
vehicles, mobile equipment and farming equipment. Students completing this course should be
qualified to find employment in the following areas: farm equipment dealerships, heavy truck
dealerships, industrial equipment dealerships, independent truck shops, independent diesel
mechanics shops, river boat mechanics, and in the natural gas and oil industry and in some auto
mechanics shops. The instruction, course of study, facilities, and equipment of this institution have
been evaluated by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Education
Foundation and meet ASE standards of quality for the training of medium/heavy duty technicians.
