Accelerated Entry Level Technician Program

Pro-MECH's Entry Level Technician Program is a four-week intensive training program that teaches technicians with very limited skills or brand new entrants into the heavy-duty maintenance field the core skills they will need in order to contribute to maintenance operations on the first day of their employment. This is a highly-focused program that teaches a very specific subset of skills. Key areas of focus center around basic equipment maintenance, DOT inspection as well as preventive maintenance inspections and follow up service. The program allocates a significant amount of time dedicated to hands-on, shop based lab work to ensure the concepts students are being taught in the classroom can be executed on the shop floor.
