Diesel Mechanics

  • Diesel-powered vehicles are found in construction roles, trains, marine applications and are commonly used in the military. In addition, fixed diesel engines are widely used as a power source for generators, pumps, and other applications requiring a dependable and economical source of power.  The Diesel Mechanics Program is a two-year training sequence aimed at students who have a desire to work on trucks, heavy machinery, and corporate fleets. 

    This program is offered at both the Mount Morris and Batavia Career and Technical Education Centers.
