The Commercial Trailer Mechanic Program will teach a student how to maintain, rebuild, overhaul, recondition, and repair different kinds of commercial truck trailers. A student can expect to graduate from the Commercial Trailer Mechanic Program within 3 years.

Many students expedite this process by garnering the hours required for certification much faster than the alloted 3 years. After graduation, the Commercial Trailer Mechanic will be knowledgeable in braking systems, axles and wheel assembly, and cooling and heating systems.
