Clean Energy Diesel Technician (advanced)

This program trains students to be the key troubleshooter in figuring out a vehicle’s driveability problems. Students learn to identify everything from powertrain malfunctions to ignition failures and other engine-related problems using state-of-the-art computer diagnostic equipment, as well as the best way to fix the problem for the client. COCC’s Engine Performance Technician program applies toward ASE certification in (A6) Automotive Electrical/Electronic Systems and (A8) Automotive Engine Performance.

This program also trains students on the operational principles and theory of: Hydraulically actuated Electronically controlled Unit Injection (HEUI) systems, the Electronic Unit Injection (EUI) systems, and the Common Rail (CR) systems, as they are applied to Diesel Engine Performance (A9).
