Peterbilt Tech Institute graduates 50th class

Peterbilt Motors Company on Friday certified the graduation of the Peterbilt Technician Institute’s (PTI) 50th graduating class.

Since PTI opened its doors in November 2013 at the Universal Technical Institute campus in Dallas more than 500 students have graduated from the program. PTI has placed more than 95 percent of graduates with a Peterbilt service location or directly with a Peterbilt customer.

“The PTI program continues to be of significant value to the overall Peterbilt dealer network. Our dealers see the benefit in having a consistent training message and bringing in much needed, new talent into the network,” says Brian Brooks, PTI director for Peterbilt Motors Company. “Many of our graduates have taken increased responsibilities within their hiring dealer, from lead technician, to service writer, to shop foreman, to training manager.”

According to Peterbilt, PTI graduates boast a 90 percent retention rate once placed with a customer or service location.
