As a student in DCTC's Heavy Duty Truck Technology program, you can advance your professional development by networking with industry leaders and fellow technicians as well as through involvement in student organizations on campus.
Minnesota Trucking Association
Uniting truckers and their employees, contractors and allies, the Minnesota Trucking Association ensures that the trucking industry speaks with one voice in three key areas:
- Creating a positive image for the industry
- Providing safe, environmentally clean and essential services
- Encouraging an economic and political environment that provides the industry with fair competition
