NYADI AND DTNA Training Program
Patrick Hart, President of NYADI The College of Automotive and Diesel Technology was invited by Daimler Trucks of North America (DTNA) and New York Freightliner to attend a two week training session at the DTNA headquarters in Portland, Oregon from May 7th through May 18th. DTNA is best known for producing Freightliner and Western Star trucks and Detroit Diesel Engines.
The purpose of the training was so that NYADI, the College of Automotive and Technology, can take the next steps in our partnership. The training, New Instructors’ Training Academy (NITA), focusses on how to use all DTNA training resources – the technology, literature, and AV. This seminar was the beginning of a process that will allow NYADI to begin training Freightliner and Western Star technicians on our campus. Additionally, it will allow us to offer our diesel students the next level of DTNA training while they are attending NYADI.
