About our Training Department
Diesel Laptops not only provides high-quality diagnostic equipment but we’re passionate about providing the best diagnostic technician training for the diesel repair industries. What started as training for diagnostic tools and a couple of basic skills for technicians has turned into a course catalog covering the most sought-after skills in the heavy-duty truck and heavy equipment industries. We offer classes on everything from electrical diagnostics and datalink systems to hydraulic system diagnostics.
All of our instructors are former technicians and are OEM and ASE certified Diesel Technician trainers. Their passion is to help technicians gain the skills and abilities needed to diagnose the modern diesel electrical and emissions systems efficiently and accurately. Our training students will be learning from former technician instructors that can relay information in a way diesel technicians are comfortable with and can break things down in simple terms.
