Heavy Truck/Diesel Technology

The demand for skilled diesel technicians continues to grow because trucks are a vital part of our country's economy.  Our Heavy Truck/Diesel lab is one of the highest level technology labs in the state of Ohio!

This two-year program is designed to provide students with practical instruction in the diagnosis, repair, and maintenance of trucks, buses, and other diesel-powered equipment.  Heavy Truck/Diesel Technology students work with a variety of equipment from small trucks to tractor-trailers.

Students are trained in the following Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certificated curriculum areas:  diesel and gasoline engines, air/hydraulic brake systems, steering/suspension systems, electrical systems, drive train, and heating/air-conditioning systems (including transport refrigeration and mechanical and electronic fuel injection).
