thats in ohio, i have a friend who is currently doing UTI's diesel program in H-town. He likes it a lot, be forewarned though... its not cheap.From what i have been told A&M's, or even SHSU's diesel programs are just as good. Depending on how far you are from corsicana, i would look at the john deere tech school they have. you're guaranteed to have a job at a JD dealership once you get out.....

I went to UTI in Houston. If I could do it all over again, I would go to there Phoenix location. Just because you can get an associates degree there. You will get out what you put in.

I have been told TSTC in Waco is good too.

What classes do you have to take other than classes that pertain to the actual mechanic classes?

AFAIK TSTC's diesel program doesn't really need any other classes, we had the TSTC diesel program about 8 miles from where i live, sadly TSTC cut it's funding and killed both it's pharm. tech and diesel courses down here, RIP TSTC palacios.

I went to TSTC in Waco for I/E, not for Diesel Mechanic but from what I heard about the diesel program, it's worth it. I know the I/E degrees where worth it.

I went there in '04. It was good it cost about 30k and the post grad employment placement sucks. I wish I would have went to wyo tech or nashville diesel.

They are all a waste of money.

You will be money and experience ahead if you get a job as an apprentice at much reduced pay and learn the ropes from the bottom up w/ no official schooling. Even going to work for a local diesel performance shop just swapping injectors and stuff.

I work at a KW dealer and the kids that come out of those schools, don't perform a bit better than the average mechanically inclined kid off the streets. But they have huge loans to pay off, lost 2 years of working, and expect more pay that they really don't deserve based on their abilities. We won't touch them anymore.
