Brian’s Answer

There are vocational schools that offer diesel classes. These schools typically have placement services, or at a minimum offer referrals for graduating students. Basic engine knowledge as well as experience with working on mechanical items will be a big help. Diesel engines are used in a myriad of fields (Marine/Agriculture/On highway/Off highway/Stationary/etc). While the base engine is very similar between the different fields, there can be differences in auxiliary equipment attached to them. The basic design of engines hasn't changed that much since their development, but the addition of emission systems and electronics over the years has complicated things immensely. Don't let that scare you. Pay particular attention to learning the controls and emission systems of engines, and you will be a valuable employee as the future unfolds. Good luck!

This will also vary widely by employer and depend on employee skill. I'd look for local job postings and call or visit them to ask this kind of question.
