Our goal is to provide students with the opportunity to build stackable credentials such as ASE Student, OSHA 10 Hour, Snap-On Multimeter as they nagivate their programs of study. This will make our students more valuable to potential employers. Diesel Technology offers the following certification opportunity:

  • ASE Student Diesel Engines
  • ASE Student Electrical/Electronic Systems

This is a relatively new program; therefore, it does not currently have an ARTICULATED credit agreement through the Alabama State Community College System.
