Diesel Technicians are Integral to Numerous Industries

If you love working with your hands and figuring out how things operate, then a career as a diesel technician may be just the right one for you.

These professionals are responsible for repairing and maintaining large vehicles and pieces of industrial equipment that power our entire economy.

From working on buses to 18-wheelers, agricultural equipment and more, you’ll help support the numerous industries our economy relies on. When you become a certified diesel technician, you become an important part of numerous, critical industries in this country!

On any given day, diesel technicians are responsible for inspecting, repairing and maintaining diesel engines. They not only diagnose issues, but they also then map out the necessary procedures required to fix those issues. So while one day you may be working on the steering mechanism in an 18-wheeler, the next you may be installing a new brake system on a school bus, or test-driving a bulldozer to make sure it’s operating properly.

Without question, diesel technicians are incredibly important members of numerous industries and help keep our economic engine running.

Why We Love Skilled Trades

Recently the American Trucking Association released its latest ATA Freight Transportation Forecast (https://bit.ly/3Azdny7), and the future is definitely looking bright!

The industry is estimated to experience tremendous growth over the next decade as the economy and population both continue to grow. The forecast pointed out that overall freight tonnage is expected to grow 20.6 billion tons in 2030. That’s up 25% from 2019’s projection.

Freight industry revenues are also expected to increase 53% to $1.6 trillion over the next decade.

And this is just the trucking industry! It’s not even taking into account the transportation or agricultural industries that also employ diesel technicians.

Needless to say, demand for diesel technicians could be increasing significantly over the next decade. In fact, according to the BLS (https://www.bls.gov/), employment of these professionals is projected to grow 3% from 2019 to 2029.

Also worth pointing out are the top five industries with the highest employment demand for diesel mechanics according to the BLS. They are:
•    General Freight Trucking
•    Local Government
•    Supply Merchant Wholesalers
•    Automotive Repair and Maintenance
•    Specialized Freight Trucking

“The economy needs skilled tradesmen…Diesel Technicians keep us running, literally!”
