Certificate

The diesel and heavy equipment mechanics program offers training in the maintenance and repair of trucks, buses and heavy equipment. This one-year certificate program emphasizes hands-on training and in-class experience as students perform preventive maintenance inspections, determine causes of equipment problems and make necessary repairs and adjustments from tune-ups to complete engine and equipment overhauls. Students work on large truck fuel, electrical and air systems, diesel engines, transmissions, differentials, crawler tractor undercarriages, steering and final drives. A student may request credit by examination for any DSLT or MECN class. See the department coordinator for details.
