The Basic Diesel Technology Certificate is designed as an introductory level certificate. This certificate addresses an industry entry level set of skills that provide a basic foundation for advanced studies and more focused training or specialization.
This is a TSI-waived certificate. Students declaring this major are not subject to the TSI regulations unless they enroll in a course outside the prescribed curriculum.
The Diesel Technology program prepares students to enter an occupation where industrial safety is a critical competency and will require all students to successfully complete a program specific safety examination prior to participating in laboratory activities. Safety examination includes written and practical “hands-on” preparation, demonstration, and safe operation of occupational processes and equipment.
Program advisor is Whitney Owens, professor of diesel service technology.
