I went to College of the Redwoods Diesel Mechanic School in Eureka CA and it taught me all the basics and how to apply it to the Big Semi trucks and with some common sense and understanding of how the engines work, how to apply it to our every day light duty diesel pickups (and SUVs/Cars). I think the college has shut that course down at this point due to the teacher (Mr. Keith Winniger) retiring, the last I heard was that the last diesel school (in CA) that didnt cost a fortune to attend was at the Long Beach Community College, you may want to check them out. You are going to learn the same knowledge if you go to wyotech as if you did a community school, I have a very good friend of mine (owns the shop next to mine) that went to wyotech and we both have the same basic knowledge, the only real difference was that wt had all the brand new fancy tools on hand while the cc had different companies that came in and demonstrated to us all the newest tools and gadgets and then we also were able to see them in use, oh, and I didnt have 30K in tuition bills to pay at the end of the course, he graduated in 9 months where as with all my general ed classes I did it in 2 1/2 yrs but I have a degree in diesel mechanics as opposed to just the certificates.
