Randolph Center, VT
This training is a broad introduction to diesel engines with the goal of demystifying them. The training begins with the theory of how internal combustion engines work and the parts that make up an engine and progresses to an explanation of what makes diesel engines different than gasoline engines. Participants will learn to identify parts on diesel engines, personal basic maintenance tasks and repairs, and troubleshoot common problems. There will be classroom discussion as well as hands-on work on actual engines. Most work will be done on common diesel tractors and other diesel machinery can be discussed as well. Participants are welcome to bring engines for "show and tell" on training day.
At the end of this training participants should be able to, at the very least, discuss engines with more confidence and leave with the ability to perform basic repair and maintenance tasks correctly on their own machinery.
