Diesel and Heavy Equipment Technology

The Diesel & Heavy Equipment programs provide an opportunity for students to learn techniques and develop skills necessary for them to acquire a job or to advance in a job as a diesel/ heavy equipment technician or a related field. This program is intended to give students basic knowledge with actual hand-on activities. Helping students understand how to apply theory to an actual on-the-job situation and helping them gain the confidence to take on larger and more complex tasks and be successful are important to the mission of the Diesel & Heavy Equipment program. The program also strives to partner with the community to meet the needs of local business and industry. Specialized training is developed on request and as time permits, in order to help employees improve their skills.
