RRC celebrated second factory trained technician class

September 19, 2018

On August 29, Red River College (RRC) celebrated its second class of Peterbilt Technician Institute (PTI) students. All eight students are ready to start their careers as certified technicians with a Peterbilt service location or directly with a Peterbilt customer across Canada.

This class also marks Peterbilt’s 51st class in North America.

The Institute is a manufacturer-paid training initiative offered to graduates of RRC’s Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic program, and to those interested in advancing their skills to become certified Peterbilt technicians.

With the continued success of the Institute, RRC and Peterbilt anticipate continued interest and increased enrolment in the next two sessions, scheduled for June and September of 2019.

Learn more about the Institute offered at the College – the only location in Canada offering this unique training opportunity. See the classroom, lab and equipment here.

Congratulations to our students and their families!
