The Detroit Series 60 engine depicted here (left) is one of the newest hi-tech engines available. However, it must still be regularly serviced by skilled technicians. Our aim at South Plains College is to provide quality education and training so you may be a part of the demand. During your training period at South Plains College, you will work on a variety of engines performing rebuilds, tune-up and troubleshooting.
The Cummins is an older model (right) but there are thousands of these engines still in operation in a wide variety of industries. This is just a sample of the hands-on skills that we emphasize. Yes, we do spend some time in the classroom, but the knowledge is put into practice for the majority of your training.
