The Diesel Technician Program is designed to fill a void for the individual who wants career training in this field, but lacks the time and/or resources required by commercial schools for formal programs. It will prepare students for entry level employment as diesel technicians and graduates with skill and knowledge to progress quickly from trainee to fully-productive status in a relatively short time.
At the Southside Virginia Community College Automotive Technology Department, we can put you on the road towards a career as an automotive mechanic/technician.
Students will learn and demonstrate knowledge in all automotive systems giving them the ability to service, diagnose and repair today’s modern automobiles. Students will be given the opportunity to test for ASE Student Certifications and the EPA 609 Certification that permits professional mobile HVAC system repair work.
