Diesel Technology  

The Diesel Technology program at Canadian Valley Technology Center is designed to give students a basic understanding of gas and diesel engines and provide them with the training and skills necessary to diagnose, repair, and maintain the diesel engine system.

In the classroom, students gain a basic understanding of diesel theory, through lectures and assignments.

In the training facility, students learn how to analyze and repair the complex electric, hydraulic, and diesel fuel systems found in today’s diesel trucks and heavy equipment. Using the same tools and techniques as the professionals, students learn, hands-on, how to properly inspect and repair gas and diesel engines, electronic systems, electrical systems, brakes, and suspension and steering systems, and cab air conditioning systems. Each student is also required to select one more additional subject area to train in, either hydraulics, drive trains, or HVAC. Students will also learn about the importance of preventive maintenance.
