Diesel Mechanic Schools

Your online resource for Diesel Mechanic Schools and Career Information. Diesel mechanics are going to see higher than average growth over the next 10 years as an increase in retiring professionals leaves more openings in the field. These professionals require formal training in order to find the best careers available, although some employers will hire those without formal education and teach them on the job. Formal diesel mechanic schools last between 6 months and 2 years, allowing students to acquire either a certificate or an associate degree in their chosen field. Some of the courses will offer 30 hours of hands-on training while others will offer classroom or lab instruction that is equivalent. Those who do not attend a formal educational program will generally need at least 3 to 4 years of on-the-job training in order to become a journey-level technician. Mechanics will take courses in mathematics, automotive and engine repair, electronics, and physics as well as other courses that are relevant. Training in diesel mechanic schools can lead to jobs as self-employed mechanics, mechanics for manufacturers, and employees for companies that operate diesel vehicles as well as other career opportunities.
