Diesel Technology Departmental Certificate

This program is offered at Clark State's Dayton location.

The diesel industry is growing and there is a current and future need for qualified technicians.  Diesel engines are more powerful and durable than gas engines, making them a popular alternative in the trucking, busing, agriculture, and construction industries.  Diesel technicians perform complete engine overhauls, minor preventative maintenance services, and everything in between.  Job opportunities are going unfilled in the Miami Valley and throughout Ohio and the country.

The Clark State Diesel Technology certificate provides the introductory skills needed to begin working in the diesel-maintenance field.  All courses taken on this certificate can be applied to the Associate of Technical Studies degree in Diesel Technology.

This program is taught in a modern, clean training facility at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center at 6800 Hoke Road in Clayton, Ohio.   Some general education courses may need to be completed online or at the Clark State Community College Greene Center Campus.
