SBVC provides our students a hands-on learning experience to accompany their ability to understand theory, the ability to think critically, and the capacity to apply that knowledge in a real-world setting. Our students do very well because SBVC provide our diverse student population with quality training, skills, and knowledge necessary to succeed in business, industry, and their chosen professions in a multicultural society.
At the completion of the program, students will be able to:
1. Diagnose and repair malfunctions in electrical systems and components of alternative fuel systems.
2. Disassemble, inspect, and repair parts, which are reusable in a manner consistent with accepted trade practices.
3. Assemble a diesel engine and/or a Direct Current (DC) or Alternating Current (AC) electric motor in accordance with manufacturer instructions and specifications.
4. Perform routine servicing of heavy-duty vehicles by evaluating equipment conditions successfully in a manner consistent with industry practices and safety standards.
5. Troubleshoot an electrical system failure, diagnose the cause, and correctly repair that failure in accordance with accepted industry standards.
The Program is offered in close cooperation with one or more employers, which aligns with San Bernardino Valley College’s mission to maintain a culture of continuous improvement and a commitment to provide high-quality education, innovative instruction, and services to a diverse community of learners. Its mission is to prepare students for transfer to four-year universities, to enter the workforce by earning applied degrees and certificates, to foster economic growth and global competitiveness through workforce development, and to improve the quality of life in the Inland Empire and beyond.
