  • About this Course

    This course will train students in the basics of repairing small engines, outdoor equipment, and powersport vehicles. In the first year, students will learn the components and systems that make up a small engine. Students will learn 4-stroke/2-stroke engine operation, maintenance procedures, diagnostics, and repair. Throughout the year, students will troubleshoot and rebuild various small engines and outdoor equipment. While the year progresses, the students will have the opportunity to earn online certifications through the Briggs and Stratton technician training course. Briggs and Stratton require all their service technicians nationwide to complete these exams. In addition, students will become First-Aid certified by the American Heart Association.

    In the second year, students will be introduced to powersports. They will be learning about different types of powersport vehicles which include dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles, jet skis, and small marine motors. They will learn about the components and systems that make up each vehicle. This program will cover preventative maintenance procedures, tire mounting, brake service, and chassis/ suspension geometry.

    Throughout both years of the program, students will learn how manufacturers of both small engine and recreational vehicles are introducing “green/ clean” alternative fuels to their product lines. Students will use the same technology the dealers use to repair various types of equipment in their repair facilities.
