At MTECH, you will join an exclusive group of graduates who benefit from a commitment to excellence shared by everyone at the school. From instructors who deliver a relevant, industry-driven curriculum to academic counselors focused on ensuring you have the tools you need to succeed, we all share the same goal: your success as a student.

Students will work on heavy duty semi truck systems. Students will learn every part of the truck – not just the diesel engine.

The work can be difficult, but there are tools that will make make the job easier. Mechanic shops usually require employees and students to lift a minimum of 50lbs.

A tools list will be given to you on the first day of class. You should be dressed ready to get dirty. Safety toed shoes, safety glasses, and clothes that cover your body well will be important throughout the program. Jewelry and hair can be a hazard, so it will be important to find ways to keep those out of the way.
