Take a truck from completely torn-down to 100% road-worthy.
Take an in-depth exploration of electrical systems and learn the ins and outs of modern emissions.
To successfully complete the program, you’ll be required to demonstrate a working knowledge of torque values, proper shop procedures (including correctly and accurately filling out work/repair orders), and have the ability to diagnose and repair common truck issues just like you would at a working truck shop.
We start by performing a pre-delivery inspection (PDI) of the trucks you’ll work on during the program… then, we tear them all down and let the (literal) dirty work begin. In this first half of the program, you’ll learn how to navigate and use OEM websites for Cummins, CAT, and Detroit engines; look up torque values; replace windshields and rear springs; complete a door adjustment on a functioning truck; troubleshoot ABS and traction control, run tests, complete a diagnosis, then order replacement parts as needed; take apart and reassemble an air system; troubleshoot an electrical system, including lights and circuits; and learn how to research, change the parameters, and do a complete tune-up on a CAT engine, a Detroit engine, and a Cummins engine.
You’ll spend most of this phase putting your shop’s trucks back together, replacing/repairing pieces as you go. This includes pulling transmissions and clutches to inspect them, then replacing (as needed) and reinstalling; checking the cooling system; checking the air cooler for leaks; inspecting the fifth wheel for tightness and adjustability; checking the fuel system, then removing, inspecting, cleaning and reinstalling the fuel tank; and performing steering checks and repairs.
