Pro-MECH utilizes online course material as preparatory material for classroom based, instructor-led training. Pro-MECH's programs focus on skills required to diagnose and repair equipment right the first time.
Pro-MECH's library of eLearning courses provides an online approach to technician learning. Courses cover a wide array of subjects, from general concepts to in-depth focused material, fitting the needs of any size shop or fleet.
Pro-MECH can build custom programs designed at your request to meet your unique training needs. Custom programs can be online or classroom based.
Our team of experienced instructors and operations managers provide an external view to your organization's service procedure and processes, identifying areas of strength along with areas where improvements can be made.
Pro-MECH has a team of highly skilled technicians that will come to your shop to work on and fix your most troubled vehicles (Elite Squad), or fill in as temporary replacements for your technicians while they attend training (Relief Squad).
The Resource Center gives technicians access to Pro-MECH online learning content as well as other internet training resources. This "plug and play" work station requires no IT department involvement and is completely independent of your company's networking infrastructure.
Use our Knowledge Surveys to assess your technicians in key subject areas. Results from fleet surveys from around the country can be seen in the graph below.

We've never encountered a company that offers the full range of capabilities and effectiveness of Pro‑MECH in a turn-key fashion. I recommend them to all my NationaLease colleagues and any other fleet operator that needs what we needed last fall.
To date, I haven't seen anything that addresses our industry better than the content of your curriculum. Once we get our program underway I will put you in touch with our leadership so they can see Pro‑MECH's value and recommend it to our members.
As a large national fleet, we see the value of training our mechanics as well as our drivers. Your curriculum provides us a great tool to do this. With today's changing technology and the minimal training that is available from the truck manufacturers I can see that your timing is perfect.
The clincher for us happened at the end of the classes. On the last day we asked if Pro‑MECH's instructors would take a look at a truck that had been down since November and nobody could fix its no start problem... Terry Rivers, their Chief Vehicle Technology Officer, analyzed the problem within 15 minutes and personally crawled under the truck with our master tech to fix it.
