Heavy Duty Mechanics
Prepare to tackle countless mechanical challenges on the job and in everyday life. Learn useful skills in gas and arc welding, hydraulics, and engine overhaul. Using both hand and power tools, investigate the areas of engines, transmissions, power trains, cooling systems, ignition wiring, and fuel systems as students explore preventive maintenance, troubleshooting techniques, and equipment repair on gas and diesel equipment. In the second year of the program students troubleshoot diesel engines with a state of the art diagnostic computer. With a solid experience in mechanics, students are better prepared to continue their education or go right to work after graduation. Students have the opportunity to participate in the OSHA 10 training and become certified.
