Diesel Technician Training Programs

The vast majority of industrial vehicles and heavy plant is powered by diesel technology. These include tractors, big rigs, diggers, highway surface scalpers, mining equipment, cranes, bulldozers, generators, drilling rigs, and vehicles for public transport. The diesel engine has truly shaped our economy, by providing the backbone for transport, distribution, and industry. These machines need to be kept in a good state of repair in order to avoid breakdowns and to keep them safe and reliable to use. A technician program for diesel engines will focus on servicing these vehicles and machines in order to keep them up and running; so preventive maintenance is the key. A breakdown might leave paying passengers stranded, or perishable goods deteriorating. Downtime really does cost money.

You may learn about a whole range of diagnostic procedures and how to use instruments designed to tell you more about faults or causes of those faults. Diesel mechanic training is moving away from simple mechanics of yesteryear. You will discover that computer technology is used increasingly as part of control systems instead of older style mechanical ones. While many problems can be fixed with the aid of good old-fashioned wrenches or welding, you will likely need to practice using handheld computers designed for diagnosing a range of faults from emissions, to timing. You should learn about steering systems, brakes, suspension, cooling systems and lubrication. Depending on the type of work you go into after your diesel technician training, you will also need to write up service histories, and be able to provide cost estimates and invoices for customers.
