OUR TWO MISSIONS

SOLVING THE HUGE SKILLS GAP

 

By 2025, there will be more mechanic openings than working mechanics.

 

U.S. Schools are producing only 20% of the mechanics actually needed.

 

Finding quality people, through a 300-hour program, equipping them with basic mechanical skills needed to successfully enter the profession and grow with their employer.

 

We value work ethic, attitude and willingness to learn.

FIXING THE BROKEN EDUCATION SYSTEM 

 

Young people simply aren’t choosing this as a career path.

 

Traditional school takes too long and is too expensive.

 

Many students drop out and/or are saddled with massive loan debt.

 

We cut both cost and time by 80%.

​​

Our 100+ employer partners have completely validated our education model.

ABOUT US

We launched our first class at American Diesel Training Centers in July of 2017.  Since then, we’ve produced more than 400 entry-level mechanics who work for more than 100 transportation companies.  

 

We’ve become the 2nd largest producer of diesel mechanics in a six-state area of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, and Kentucky. Within the next two years, we’ll become the largest. Our program is only 20% of the time and cost of your typical technical school.  

 

We’ve had students from states outside of Ohio complete the program, and we’ve had graduates go on to work for companies in places as far away as Las Vegas.  

 

More than anything, we’re proud of the people who’ve come through our program, the lives we’ve helped change, and the service that we’ve provided to companies in this great and vital industry. For those companies who say, “We just can’t find anyone who wants to work, we say, "WE CAN!”

You just need to know where to look.
