OUR STORY

WE LAUNCHED OUR FIRST CLASS AT AMERICAN DIESEL TRAINING CENTERS IN JULY OF 2017.

 

SINCE THEN, WE'VE PRODUCED MORE THAN 450 ENTRY-LEVEL DIESEL TECHNICIANS.

WE NOW WORK WITH MORE THAN 130 TRANSPORTATION AND TRUCKING COMPANIES.

WE'VE BECOME THE 2ND LARGEST PRODUCER OF DIESEL MECHANICS IN THE SIX STATE AREA OF OH, MI, PA, MI, WV, AND KY. 

WITHIN THE NEXT TWO YEARS... WE WILL BECOME THE LARGEST.

OUR PROGRAM IS ONLY 20% OF THE TIME AND COST OF YOUR TYPICAL TECHNICAL SCHOOL.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, WE ARE PROUD OF THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE COME THROUGH OUR PROGRAM, THE LIVES WE'VE HELPED CHANGE, AND THE SERVICE WE HAVE PROVIDED TO COMPANIES IN THIS GREAT AND VITAL INDUSTRY.

FOR THE 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.

OUR 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.

WE FIND QUALITY PEOPLE, PUT THEM THROUGH A 300-HOUR PROGRAM, EQUIP THEM WITH BASIC MECHANICAL SKILLS NEEDED TO SUCCESSFULLY ENTER THE INDUSTRY AND GROW WITH THEIR EMPLOYER.

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 TIME AND COST BY 80%.

OUR 130+ EMPLOYER PARTNERS HAVE COMPLETELY VALIDATED OUR EDUCATION MODEL.
