About this Program

Students who wish to become skilled PowerSports mechanics must be capable of diagnosing mechanical failures quickly and accurately if they are to be in a position to repair the job at a fair salary return. Most types of two- and four-cycle small engines that are currently used to power lawn mowers, snow blowers, generators, garden tractors, rototillers, snowmobiles, ATVs and personal watercraft will be covered. Students who perform satisfactorily may find employment as service technicians, sales personnel and factory representatives, or they may wish to enter business for themselves. This program requires a mechanical aptitude and the ability to read and comprehend technical service manuals, understand and perform a variety of diagnostic procedures, and work well with fellow employees and customers. Many industry training opportunities are available.
