Diesel Mechanics Exploring Program

Event Details

Do you like taking things apart and putting them back together? Thinking about a career that isn’t behind a desk?

A Diesel Mechanic or Auto Technician career may the right choice for you! Truck Country invites you to participate in their Large Engine Mechanic Exploring Program.

How many of us know what we are looking at when we pop the hood of a vehicle? Most of us see a mass of wires, belts and parts that make little sense. A mechanic sees something very different: A puzzle of pieces that fit together just as they should. Understanding that puzzle can help them narrow down the options, diagnose the problem, and have you back on the road as soon as possible.

What to Expect:

  • Remove engine components and learn the functionality and operation
  • Compete in a “Top Gun” competition
  • Build your own light or horn circuit

Meetings: October 14, November 18, December 9, and January 13
Time: 4:00-5:30 PM
Location: Truck Country Training Center  |  10819 Wood Gate Dr, Suite 2  |  Dubuque, IA
Registration Fee****: $50.00 (plus $2 online convenience fee**)

This is an excellent way to learn about careers in the mechanical fields while having a great time.  Remember, your future is the best reason to explore careers today!
