Course Overview

In today’s world, a diesel engine mechanic’s role is not limited to its basic tasks anymore. Today, diesel engine mechanics are expected to install, repair, and maintain all components of an internal combustion diesel engine. This training program allows you to train for one of the world’s most highly demanded careers. Delegates will study the difference between the 4 stroke and 2 stroke engine cycles, strategies for diesel engine maintenance, the fuel injection system, and thermodynamic cycles.

What makes this “Certified Diesel Engine Mechanic Course” relevant to you? The best part about this training program is that it is beneficial to participants with no previous diesel mechanic experience, those who have had similar jobs, and even those who are currently working as diesel engine mechanics.

This Zoe training course will empower you with knowledge on basic diesel engine operations right up to automated truck management systems.
