Outdoor Power/Recreational Vehicle Technology
This 9-month program is designed to prepare students for entry-level employment in the small engine/power equipment industry. Students will be ready to work as outdoor power equipment, motorcycle and recreational vehicle technicians.
This program will begin with the basics of powerplant theory and progress through all the aspects of engine, drivetrain and ancillary systems that make up modern small engine powered equipment. Students will learn theory, application and troubleshooting of 2 and 4 stroke engines, compact diesel engines, electrical systems, fuel systems, powertrain systems and many other related systems pertaining to these and other topics. Integrated into the program is a course in welding and hydraulic systems.
Successful completion of each course or instructor permission is required to continue into the next course. Prospective students who do not meet the initial eligibility requirements for a professional-technical limited-enrollment program will need to take selected course to receive necessary skill-building prior to entering the program.
Current industry professionals may enroll in individual courses on a space-available basis and with the instructor’s permission.
