Coursework prepares students to succeed as well-trained, mechanically minded, hard-working mechanics with heavy equipment dealers and contractors. Instruction involves classroom theory, mock-up demonstrations and repair of customer-owned heavy equipment. Making repairs on actual equipment is vital to skill development. Mechanics already in the field can update their knowledge by registering for specific courses.
Heavy equipment dealers and earth-moving contractors are top employers. Jobs are also available with mining and logging companies. Most mechanics work in indoor shops, but experienced field service technicians travel to job sites to perform repairs.
