Diesel Laptops University is a collaborative effort with Today’s Class, an industry-leading provider of ASE-accredited, interactive online learning. In conjunction with our in-person, instructor led training classes we can now offer you technician training classes in a variety of formats.

Besides the fact that finding diesel technicians is a real challenge, finding qualified diesel technicians is even more challenging. You also want your current technicians to improve their skills, which results in your shops ability to provide better and quicker service to your customers. The industry also has a severe lack of training available to diesel and automotive technicians. Diesel Laptops University has a solution to these training problems.
