Training That Gets You Hired
Most employers require a high school diploma or equivalent. High school or postsecondary courses in automotive repair, electronics, and mathematics provide a strong educational background for a career as a diesel mechanic.
Many employers specifically look for workers with postsecondary training in diesel engine repair. Central Pennsylvania Diesel Institute offers that training.
Upon completion of our course, you will have earned a diploma in Heavy-Duty Truck Diesel Repair and will be qualified for just about any entry-level position in the field.
Practical Training + Hands-On Experience = Steady Employment
Employers know that graduates of CPDI not only have theoretical learning but that they can also do the hands-on work that they require to maintain their diesel fleet.
Since our goal for every student is rewarding, steady employment, our programs mix classroom instruction with hands-on training, including the basics of diesel technology, repair techniques and equipment, and practical exercises. This ensures that not only do you understand the concepts but that you are able to put them into action to repair diesel engines.
Graduates usually advance quickly to journey worker status, which means they are expected to work with minimal supervision far more readily than a mechanic who did not receive formal training. This allows graduates to advance their careers more quickly, as well, and for potential employers to know that hiring a CPDI graduate is a ‘sure bet’.
