This is an accelerated program and requires the students to be up to speed on basic mechanical skills. If there is a lack of mechanical background, we strongly suggest the 2-year AAS degree path. This allows the student to learn basic mechanical skills along with gaining a sound academic background before moving into the full-time diesel program.
This career path cannot be a classroom experience only. That is why the Casper College Diesel Power Program is structured in the following manner:
40% of the time is classroom oriented 60% is lab time or hands-on training
This type of training structure will allow the student to pursue any of the following areas:
- Family equipment repair (farm or ranch equipment repair).
To be successful in this area, the individual needs to be highly motivated. This career path can be highly
rewarding and will pay very well. The need for skilled people in this area is growing at a rapid rate.
