About this Program

Students in the Heavy Duty Truck Technology program will learn all aspects of heavy duty truck repair and maintenance. (The program focuses on large trucks, typically class 7 and 8). Some of the areas included are electrical systems, steering and alignment, and air and foundation brakes. Students will perform diesel engine troubleshooting, overhauls and tune-ups on both mechanical and electronic engines. Clutch, transmission, drive axle repair and overhaul will be taught along with welding instruction and preventive maintenance procedures. The instruction will include classroom theory, shop demonstrations, and hands-on skill development. Much of the shop work is performed on actual vehicles in operating condition.
