Small Engine Repair

Small engine technicians repair and service small gasoline and diesel powered equipment such as garden tractors, lawn mowers and other related equipment. They determine estimates of repair cost, set up and operate small-power equipment, inspect and test small engines and other mechanical components using test devices to diagnose and isolate faults, adjust, repair or replace mechanical or electrical system parts and components using hand tools and equipment, perform scheduled maintenance service on equipment, maintain and repair engines and engine components, and test and adjust repaired equipment for proper performance.

You will learn to maintain and repair small gas-powered engines. There will be a focus on Briggs & Stratton – twin cylinder “L” Head and “Vanguard” V-twin OHV engines. You will also learn about the electrical and fuel systems on both engines. After successful completion of the program, you are awarded a certificate of completion from Delta College.

The Small Engine Repair program also prepares students to take the EETC Technician Certification Test to obtain certification as a Certified 4 Stroke Engine Technician. Small engine technicians are employed by dealer service shops and by independent service establishments. Some small engine technicians own their own business. 

What kind of certification will I receive?

After successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a certificate from Delta College.
