MOTORCYCLE & POWER EQUIPMENT TECHNOLOGY
Graduates will have the ability to diagnosis, troubleshoot and disassemble small engines; replace pistons, bearings, gears, valves and bushings; install ignition systems; perform wheel alignment and replace steering/suspension components; replace clutches, transmissions and parts; lubricate moving parts; diagnose problems with and replace chassis assemblies; disassemble and replace hydraulic brakes; preform necessary maintenance and checks on various pieces of equipment. The skills will be taught in both classroom and lab environments.
Power Up Your Career Path
The Motorcycle and Power Equipment Technology program covers not just motorcycles, but also a variety of power equipment. Students learn pretty much everything bumper to bumper on a motorcycle except body work, so breaking down the engines to the block and rebuilding them, transmissions, fuel and exhaust systems, electrical, tires, brakes, and suspension. We cover different pieces of power equipment like dirtbikes and ATVs, side-by-sides, and riding lawnmowers.
In addition, smaller pieces of equipment like push mowers, pressure washers, roto-tillers, and snow blowers are covered, even getting into two-cycle engines like on a chainsaw or gas trimmer. Students also learn a little bit about aquatic engines, focusing mostly on outboard engines and jet-skis.
