Career Opportunities

Students in the Diesel and Truck Technology program have the opportunity to become involved in cooperative education. In the months of March, April, and May, students meeting the requirements may work for a local Diesel repair facility during school hours. During this time, students will earn school credit as well as receive “real-world” experience in the Diesel repair trade. In addition, a student involved in cooperative education will be paid for his or her time worked by the employer.

Some students in this program stay employed with the employer after graduation. Others may use the experience on a resume after graduation from higher education. In either case, this type of experience is extremely valuable to the student and future employers.

A few of the many Career Opportunities for successful graduates of the Diesel and Truck Technology program include:

  • Truck Technicians
  • Power Generation Technicians
  • Heavy Equipment Technicians
  • Marine Technicians
  • Service Management
  • Parts Counter People
  • Garage Owner/Operator
