The Heavy/Medium Duty Diesel Truck Technology (Diesel) program at SBVC received a generous donation to further provide state-of-the-art resources for its students. Velocity Vehicle Group donated a 2012 Cascadia Luxury Truck for the program’s students to work on for class projects.

This three axle truck, which uses a new Compressed Natural Gas energy source, has a market value of approximately $90,000. San Bernardino Valley College has one of the best diesel technology training facilities in the region, where jobs in that field are in high demand because the Inland Empire is a transportation hub for goods being moved from Los Angeles to the rest of the country.

The newly approved course 034 Alternative fuel class will greatly benefit from the truck donation and will also be used in all 8 Diesel classes in the department.
