Today’s diesel technicians are constantly being challenged to keep diesel-powered equipment running efficiently to meet the needs of businesses. Technicians service the equipment that moves freight, earth and people, drills for oil, powers farm tractors and generates electrical power.
Crowder trains diesel technicians to diagnose and repair engine problems, service/repair hydraulic systems, electrical/electronic systems, brake systems, and powertrains in over-the-road, agricultural, and construction settings.
Diesel Technology is a two year program designed for students who seek a career in the diesel engine repair industry. Students have the opportunity to study the basics of operation in the classroom and then apply that knowledge in the job while working on training components as well as actual trucks.
