Program:      Diesel Technology             Embedded Credit:       Science
Instructor:   Mr. Lyman

Program Description:

        The Diesel Technology Curriculum is a one or two-year course of study that provides
students with core skills necessary to obtain entry-level employment in the field and/or pursue
post-secondary education. Students that reach the age of 18 during the school year will receive
instruction toward obtaining a Commercial Driver License. CDL training, usually part of the
year two curriculum, includes review of the Vermont CDL Manual and completion of the written
DMV test. A passing grade on the written test results in a CDL permit. Students can then receive
driving instruction. Students are then eligible to complete the CDL road skills test.

        Major topics covered in the course include safety, basic engine theory and operation,
vehicle maintenance, problem solving and diagnostics, system repair and overhauls, welding and
fabrication. Students also have the option of learning the operation of heavy equipment (e.g.
bulldozer, backhoe). Maintenance and repair of this equipment is a central part of all student
experience in this course. Throughout the course students will receive instruction and support
designed to help prepare the student with proper work place skills and attitudes.


Year One:     Engine Design, Operation, Repair, and Maintenance
              Welding Theory and Practice


Course Objectives: At the completion of this course students will demonstrate:

       Shop safety skills and knowledge of tools and their uses;

       Knowledge of engine theory and operation;

       Knowledge of gas and diesel fuel systems;

       Knowledge of electrical and charging systems;

       Knowledge of air and hydraulic brake systems; and

       Knowledge of oxy fuel welding, cutting, arc welding, shielded arc welding, and gas metal
       arc welding.
Year Two:      Heavy Equipment and Hydraulics
               Commercial Driver’s License Preparation

Course Objectives: At the completion of this course students will demonstrate:

       Shop safety skills and knowledge of their tools and uses;

       Safety skills and working knowledge related to hydraulic systems;

       The ability to maintain and operate heavy equipment and trucks; and

       The ability to be able to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License if he/she is 18 years old.


Course Expectations, Projects, and Grading Protocol

       During the course of the year students will engage in a variety of graded projects, tests
and quizzes, and projects. A daily grade is assigned via a 1 –10 scale and is based on student
performance in the class. This daily grade is then calculated into a weekly grade. Students should
expect a minimum of one test or quiz weekly.

       Students will also receive feedback as to their performance in relation to state-approved
occupational skill competencies (attached).

         Projects will include work on RTCC vehicles as well as those of local businesses.
Students have the opportunity to work on individual projects with the prior approval of instructor
if the project fits the objectives of the course. It is the intent of the course that students have the
opportunity to overhaul at least one heavy equipment engine, and brake system.

       Grading protocol is as follows:


                              Project/Assignment                                      Percentage of
