Diesel Technology

Diesel Technology

The LCC Diesel Technology Program is offering all classes in person.

The Diesel Technology program is AED certified and feature a state-of-the-art laboratory designed to prepare graduates to work on highway trucks, construction equipment, forklifts, boats, recreation vehicles, trains and agriculture equipment. It will prepare you to work as a diesel technician in service and repair of diesel engines, hydraulic systems, braking systems, electrical systems, drivetrains and air conditioning systems.

Some excellent employment opportunities include heavy equipment dealers and fleets, on and off highway truck dealers and fleets, independent repair shops, public transportation, school districts and government agencies.

Note: Note: While Lane continues to offer the 2-year degree program, the 2-yr certificate program has been suspended, and is no longer offered as of Spring 2021. This change is due to updates to Associate of Applied Science degree requirements that have made the 2-year certificate the same as the Diesel Technology, AAS degree. Students previously pursuing the 2-year certificate can change to the AAS without any change in course requirements. Students interested in this program should contact the Advanced Technology department or academic advisors at advtechprograms@lanecc.edu for assistance.
