Peterbilt Technician Institute (PTI) announced the start of the inaugural service technician class at its Nashville campus. Students will complete 12 weeks of an accelerated service technician training program with the end goal of becoming certified Peterbilt Service technicians.
A partnership between PTI and Lincoln Tech was established earlier this year to enhance and expand service technician training opportunities geographically. The PTI curriculum 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. Students are exposed to a three-part learning approach that includes hands-on training to build experience and working knowledge of Peterbilt trucks, Peterbilt said.
Upon completion of the advanced program, students will earn factory-trained technician credentials which can fast-track them to careers at more than 425 Peterbilt dealerships across the U.S. and Canada.
