Diesel Engine & Power Generation Technician Training
CPSUniversity (CPSU) is the vision of Cummins Power South, LLC and is designed to provide rigorous in-depth training on Cummins products. Candidates for the program may choose from two disciplines, Heavy-Duty and Mid-Range Engine or Power Generation. Both programs are currently being offered to diesel engine technology students who have completed a qualified diesel technology program.
The twelve week Heavy-Duty and Mid-Range engine training program, based at the state-of-the-art CPS Technical Service Training Center in Tampa, FL, is led by Bill Sigmund, Director of Technical Support – Engine Business, and John Black, Training Manager. The program, whose curriculum is developed and taught by CPSU Training Instructor, Kevin Parson, includes the following elements:
- Only the top graduates of approved VoTech diesel technology programs or those with related work experience, including military training, are considered
- Upon graduation, students offered employment agree to a three year commitment with Cummins Power South and may specify location preferences within the CPS footprint
- Upon completion, graduates are qualified on Cummins Mid-Range and Heavy Duty Automotive products (1991-2010). In addition, students receive broader training on all the systems used at Cummins Power South, including JSA Safety, Cummins Insite, Cummins Expert Diagnostic System (EDS), Cummins QuickServe Online and Guardian Inspection.
The Cummins Power Generation training program is based at the Atlanta, GA Technical Service Training Center and also runs twelve weeks. The power generation program is led by Philip Foster, Director of Technical Support – Power Generation Business and Pat Parker, Technical Trainer. Students who successfully graduate from the power generation program will be fully certified on Cummins Power Generation products and will be ready to join the power generation technical industry. Graduates may be offered a regular, full-time position as a power generation technician in one of our fourteen service locations and will be required to make a service commitment to Cummins Power South.
