Students in the Diesel Truck Technology program are required to have a tool set for lab activities. During orientation and the first week of classes, several major tool manufacturers hold a tool day event, offering products to students at a 40 to 60 percent discount off the list price. Instructors provide students with a list of minimum requirements. The cost of tools and tool box is estimated to be $5,000 - $6,500 and payment plans are arranged directly with the manufacturers.
