These scholarships are part of an ongoing effort by TMC’s Professional Technician Development Committee (PTDC) to promote professionalism of commercial vehicle technicians. PTDC will help determine the winner of the scholarships. Both schools are active participants in PTDC and have provided the scholarships to promote interest in trucking industry careers through diesel engine repair and service or related maintenance and maintenance management career paths.
WyoTech, a charter member of PTDC, is awarding two tuition scholarships for 1,500 clock hours (nine months) for its diesel program attendance at either of WyoTech’s Laramie WY or Blairsville PA campuses. Students can select from start dates of Sept 28, 2009; Jan 5, 2010; or March 31, 2010.
UNOH, Lima OH, will award a tuition-only only scholarship to a student working toward a degree in auto diesel technology or a bachelor degree in specialized studies with a minor in automotive aftermarket management.
