Peterbilt Technician Institute recognizes milestone 100th graduating class

The Peterbilt Technician Institute (PTI) recently graduated the milestone 100th class. The ten graduates of the 12-week advanced technician program are among the nearly 1,000 PTI factory-certified technicians that have been trained and placed at Peterbilt dealer service locations since the launch of the program in 2013.

The PTI graduates participated in a graduation ceremony attended by Peterbilt and Universal Technical Institute (UTI) staff, as well as their new employers from the Peterbilt dealer network, including Rush Peterbilt Truck Centers, Jackson Group Peterbilt, JX Truck Center – Peterbilt and TLG Peterbilt. The graduation ceremony represented achievement for the PTI graduates in obtaining their goals and progress for the Peterbilt dealer network to meet the growth and increased demand to service customers and maximize uptime.

PTI is a collaborative program with UTI and serves as a resource for the Peterbilt dealer network to help recruit and hire highly prepared factory-trained technicians. With campuses located in Lisle, IL, and Dallas TX, every PTI student earns Peterbilt factory certifications that include PACCAR MX-11 and MX-13 engines as they embark on a rewarding career in the diesel industry.
