The Diesel Technology program provides juniors and seniors an
opportunity to learn real-life skills while learning Diesel Technology theory and completing applied technical projects. Led by an instructor who is ASE Master Certified in Truck, Auto, Service Consulting and Parts Specialist, the program begins with students
learning a variety of methods. These include repair, service and maintenance of diesel
engines in a variety of forms:  automobiles, agricultural & construction equipment, trucks, and buses.  Students have the opportunity to work with customers, suppliers and other professionals. 


The program culminates with students completing an intensive individualized project that tests the student's knowledge and learning of real-world methodologies.  Our students work on leadership skills through their involvement with The National FFA organization.  Other opportunities for eligible students may include: earning a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), taking a college class through the Vermont State Colleges and experiencing job cooperative opportunities.  From welding to rebuilds, students thrive in their ability to work in our custom equipped shop.
