Jun 3, 2020

Becoming a diesel mechanic or technician can be a highly rewarding career. It's not just another job or paycheck; a career at Ruan as a technician will set you up for a successful future. Here are some insights from one of our regional maintenance managers on becoming a diesel mechanic at Ruan. 

What characteristics or skill sets do you need to become a diesel mechanic?

Anyone who is considering a career as a diesel technician should have a sense of adventure and love unique challenges. These individuals should not be afraid to take something apart or take on a small project around the house, such as building a cabinet or fixing an appliance. What I've found over the years is that those individuals who have this trait understand basic mechanical concepts and follow through on the diagnostic process. As quickly as technology is changing in the transportation industry, our technicians’ skill sets will also need to change, and being adventurous is important. That's why at Ruan we ensure all our technicians receive ongoing training, resulting in highly capable technicians.
