The need to move goods around the country by truck is always increasing, and with it comes a consistent need for skilled professionals to keep these trucks on the road and moving products. CPDI equips our students to meet that demand.
Upon completion of the program, you will receive a Diploma in Heavy Truck Technology. This diploma indicates to potential employers that you are well qualified for an entry-level position as a Diesel Mechanic.
Our Guiding Principles

About the Program
Our course is a 630-hour, 9-month intensive learning program that prepares students for entry-level employment in all areas of diesel repair, maintenance, failure analysis and diagnosis. Instruction starts in the classroom with theory training on each focus area, then moves into a hands-on, real-life shop area where the instruction is put into action.
Our classes are intentionally small, with typically no more than 16 students per session. Each student receives the personalized attention that they need to learn the material and to test what they’ve learned in the hands-on shop sessions.
Students who train with us have been employed all around the United States. Our students typically come from the Liverpool, PA area, but students travel from all over the north east to take part in our training.
