HANDS-ON DIESEL MECHANIC EDUCATION

In less than a year,7 you could train to be a diesel technician. It all starts with completing a core diesel program. These foundational courses build your base knowledge from the ground up, teaching you how to diagnose, repair, and replace like a true big engine professional. From here, you can move on to specialized advanced training on diesel trucks and engines from leading brands.

Our Diesel program follows a blended learning model, which includes a mix of online instructor-led training with hands-on application in the lab. This allows students to experience what training is like in the workforce and offers more flexibility with schedules.

UTI is not an online diesel mechanic school, but students will spend about half of a typical six-hour day on online coursework. The other half is typically spent in the lab.
