Students study a variety of vehicle systems in classes combining theory and laboratory exercises that prepare graduates to work on a variety of medium- and heavy-duty trucks and equipment. The program provides extensive hands-on training opportunities to ensure competency at program completion.

Special Requirements

Students are required to purchase textbooks, tools and personal safety equipment. One must not be allergic to fuels, oils and chemicals used in industry. Most employers require a valid driver’s license and a good driving record.
