by Truck News

DENTON, Texas — Peterbilt has marked a milestone by graduating more than 200 service technicians through its Peterbilt Technician Institute.

The truck maker has also added two new campuses to the original location in Dallas. They’re in Lisle, Ill. and Exton, Penn.

The most recent graduating class – its 21st – brought the total number of trained technicians to 208.

“The Peterbilt Technician Institute has been a resounding success for Peterbilt and its dealer network, as well as a career launch for highly skilled and trained service technicians,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice-president. “In turn, our customers receive an excellent service experience, which leads to the highest levels of customer satisfaction from our dealer network.”

The PTI also trains service technicians from Peterbilt fleet customers.

“PTI is open to service technicians at Peterbilt customers that perform in-house maintenance,” added Siver.

The PTI was launched two years ago and offers a 12-week program that features on classroom and hands-on instruction of total vehicle and engine diagnostics, maintenance and repairs.
