Peterbilt Technician Institute recognizes 1,000th graduate

Jason Neumann has been named Peterbilt's 1,000th Technician Institute graduate.

The Peterbilt Technician Institute (PTI) recently recognized its 1,000th graduate during the graduation ceremony at its Lisle, Illinois campus. Since its creation in 2013, PTI has been an initiative within Peterbilt with the goal of training highly qualified service technicians to be employed at any of the company’s 420+ locations.

The PTI program runs for 12 weeks. Students earn Peterbilt-specific certifications to maintain, diagnose and repair Peterbilt vehicles and PACCAR engines.

Jason Neumann, the 1,000th graduate, came to the program following his completion of the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) diesel technician training program at UTI-Lisle. Neumann is a U.S. Army veteran who worked on diesel vehicles during his service and has already received an employment offer from Peterbilt dealer JX Enterprises, at its Green Bay, Wisconsin location.
