Diesel technology is an important part of the transportation industry and qualified diesel technicians play an integral role in keeping the industry moving. At J-Tech Institute, we’re doing our part to meet the demand for skilled diesel technicians by offering a 91-credit hour, ASE‑based Diesel Technology Program with a curriculum that is designed to help students acquire the hands-on skills and confidence they need to launch successful careers in the diesel technology industry.

At J-Tech, we understand it takes more than a solid technical skill set to succeed in any industry. That’s why our curriculum is designed in collaboration with industry professionals and local employers. We’re actively listening and communicating to make sure our curriculum has what it takes to prepare students for the realities of the workplace. And it doesn’t all happen in a classroom. J-Tech’s Laboratory mimics realistic work environments, so students receive valuable hands-on training that is as real as it gets.
