Diesel Equipment Mechanic

OCAS Program Code K102 - Two Semesters (30 Weeks, beginning in September)

Designed to provide practical up-to-date training for careers in diagnosing and repairing of equipment in farm, construction and heavy duty equipment industries.

You will have the opportunity to develop the skills involved in the diagnosis and repair of equipment found in farm, construction, or highway truck industries. The ever increasing sophistication of diesel equipment found in today's motive power market, coupled with a broad application in a number of industries, will continue to create a demand for skilled, well trained mechanics to maintain this equipment. This in-school program provides time allocation for trade theory, shop practice and industry related subjects.
