Employment Outlook

The use of diesels in the trucking and construction industries is growing in demand, which fuels the increase in job opportunities. Once the equipment is put into operation, it must be properly maintained for years of extended use. This increase in the use of diesel engines has prompted a demand for highly skilled service and repair technicians. Diesel technicians know the function of each part of the vehicle and use that knowledge to diagnose problems to make adjustments and repairs.
