Diesel Engine & Power Generation Technician Training
CPSUniversity (CPSU) is the vision of the leadership of the South Region of Cummins Sales and Service. The training program is designed to provide rigorous in-depth training on many of the products offered by Cummins and supported by our network of service locations.
Candidates for the program may choose from two disciplines. Applicants that love working on the powerful diesel engines of industry should select the Diesel Engine training program in Tampa, FL. Applicants that are interested in working with highly technical electrical power generating equipment should select the Power Generation training program in Atlanta, GA. Both programs are currently being offered to diesel engine technology students who have completed a qualifying diesel technology program at an approved institution.
Only the top students at approved technical colleges, or those strong candidates with related work experience, including military training, are considered as potential candidates.
The twelve week diesel engine training program, based at the state-of-the-art Cummins Technical Service Training Center in Tampa, FL, is led by Kevin Parson, Training Manager. The program is taught by CPSU Training Instructor Kenneth DeLano.
Upon completion, students will be qualified on Cummins Mid-Range and Heavy Duty on-highway diesel engines in service from 1991-2017. In addition, students receive broader training on all the systems used by service technicians at Cummins, including JSA Safety, Cummins Insite, Cummins Expert Diagnostic System (EDS), Cummins QuickServe online and the Guardian Inspection program.
The Power Generation training program is based in Atlanta, GA and also runs twelve consecutive weeks. The power generation program is led by Joseph Haas, Training Manager, and taught by Pat Parker, Technical Trainer. Students who successfully graduate from the power generation program will be certified on Cummins Power Generation products and will be ready to join the power generation technical industry. Training in this program also includes load bank testing, planned maintenance procedures, and electrical safety familiarization.
Upon graduation from either the Diesel Engine or Power Generation programs, students may be offered employment and agree to a three year service commitment with Cummins. This offer of employment will be within the footprint of the South Region of Cummins North American operating territory. This includes North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
