Instructor: Dennis Wallace

I started my career as a diesel technician, taught Diesel Equipment Technology at Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon, Iowa, for many years, and now teach and train at Midwest Diesel Tech Academy.

I learn best by working with my hands on projects and activities. And my teaching philosophy is the same way.

At Midwest Diesel Tech Academy, students learn the technical side of the equipment, and gain valuable hands-on experience in our training program. We train on live equipment, truck components -- such as engines, transmissions and drive axles – as well as simulated training boards.

I get great satisfaction in taking something that isn’t working correctly and making it work again. This is a great career … everything else is just another job.
