Aviation

The first steps in learning to fly begin on the ground. TMCC offers the classroom training required before future pilots take to the air. Our pilot training courses meet all Federal Aviation Administration standards and are taught by highly-qualified, FAA-certified instructors. Course work is supplemented with visits to local airports, tower control, radar service stations and aircraft maintenance shops. Students who complete the TMCC aviation courses are referred to local flight schools to continue their training.


Diesel

Diesel technicians maintain and repair over-the-road semi tractors and heavy equipment used in long-haul trucking, construction, and mining. The growth of the warehousing and construction industries in northern Nevada has created a significant shortage of qualified diesel technicians in recent years. Designed with the input and support of local industry experts, the TMCC diesel program complies with national certification standards. The one-year certificate of achievement prepares general maintenance technicians for entry-level work, while the associate of applied science degree with an emphasis in diesel technology provides the training necessary to professionally repair both over-the-road and heavy equipment from a variety of vendors.
