Peterbilt partners with Lincoln Tech on technician training

Lincoln Tech says that students are exposed to a three-part learning approach that includes hands-on training.

Peterbilt recently announced a new partnership with Lincoln Educational Services Corporation (Lincoln Tech) to offer the Peterbilt Technician Institute (PTI) program at its Nashville, Tennessee location to prepare students for a career as a Peterbilt service technician.

Lincoln Tech says it offers a diesel training program at its Nashville campus that will allow PTI students to build additional skills using Peterbilt-specific equipment and technologies.

The PTI curriculum, according to the company, provides graduates of Lincoln Tech’s auto, diesel and heavy equipment technology programs advanced training on systems ranging from fuel and electrical to HVAC, suspensions and brakes. Lincoln Tech says that students are exposed to a three-part learning approach that includes hands-on training to build experience and working knowledge of Peterbilt trucks, a classroom session approach to build teamwork and communication skills and a web-based skill-building activities approach to incorporate technology into learning.

Upon completion of the advanced diesel program, students will have earned nine factory-trained technician credentials, which can help fast-track them to careers at more than 420 Peterbilt dealerships across the US and Canada, the company notes. The program is scheduled to begin this summer.
