Department of Labor Certified Diesel Technician Apprenticeship Program
The TA Truck Service Diesel Technician Apprenticeship program gives aspiring truck service technicians and diesel mechanics guided, hands-on experience, teaching them to safely and efficiently perform the maintenance and repairs needed to keep today’s technologically advanced commercial vehicles safely on the road. The program allows participants to work full-time at a TA Truck Service facility while completing their training, instead of paying to attend a vocational school or training program.
Most of the training is facilitated by a mentor technician while on the job. Participants also have access to live support from an around-the-clock technical support team, made up of ASE Master Technicians based at TravelCenters of America headquarters.
Participation in the apprenticeship program can span 12 to 36 months, depending on the skill level of the truck service technician or diesel mechanic enrolled. Upon the successful completion of the training, the participant receives recognition by the U.S. Department of Labor as a Journeyman Diesel Technician.
