Gwinnett Technical College in Lawrenceville, Ga., has added the new heavy equipment service technician program to the college’s automotive service technology division, rounding out the college’s repertoire of automotive programs.

The program is being introduced at Gwinnett Tech in response to industry demands. This is one of the fastest growing and high need areas in Georgia, as identified by the Department of Labor, and Gwinnett Tech created the program to meet the needs of its business customers and partners.

Many of these business partners, like John D. Stephens, Tractor and Equipment Company, Briggs Construction, Ingersoll Rand and Hertz Equipment Rental are sponsoring the program, which includes a five-week paid internship. These internships hold the potential to lead to full-time job placement.

The program addresses some of the primary elements of the field, including the fundamentals of diesel engines, electrical systems, power trains and hydraulics.

Upon completion of this new program in the service technology program at Gwinnett Tech, students enter the field as heavy equipment service technicians working with diesel equipment, truck/bus rental equipment and repair facilities.

The new heavy equipment service technician certificate program can be completed in less than a year.
