Diesel Engine Mechanic

Diesel-Engine Mechanics install, repair and maintain all diesel internal-combustion engines and components used in transport, construction and marine industries. They may use computerized diagnostic equipment to test, adjust and repair engines and associated components.

Diesel engines are known for their hard work, and because of that are found in hard working vehicles like buses, large trucks, boats, bulldozers, dump trucks, cranes, and even some light duty trucks and cars.

A Heavy Mechanical Foundation program can jump-start your career without employer sponsorship by supplying the knowledge and skills to enter directly at Apprenticeship Level 2, after 36 weeks of training (refer to the Industry Training Authority for alternative pathways into the occupation).

Recommendations

Recommended education: Grade 10 or equivalent (Grade 12 is preferred), including English 10, Math 10, Science 10.

 

The Apprenticeship Program comprises Levels 1-to-2 of progressive technical training, with Level 1 taking ten weeks (300 hours) and Level 2 taking eight weeks (240 hours) to complete. In addition, apprentices are required to accumulate 3,000 hours of work-based training.

 

This trade shares common Levels 1 and 2 training with other Heavy Equipment Service trades, and thus, may be referred to as “Heavy Mechanical Trades” in our schedules.
