Duncan Ranks 35 Out of 220 Daimler Get Ahead Schools!
Duncan's Heavy Truck program's partnership with Daimler Trucks of North America's Get Ahead Program has been a great learning platform to supplement the student's core curriculum. The students get to experience first hand what proprietary manufacturer web based training looks like and they earn real DTNA certifications in the process. This is also beneficial and supports our DTNA training aids our school possesses. The Seniors completed a DTNA Get Ahead DD15 Engine Tune Up course, which included a detailed video of the procedure and took an assessment. They then walked right out in the shop and adjusted valve lash on our four DD15 engines (sourced from DTNA training aids). As of today we are 1 of 2 high school's in this program and ranked 35th out of 220 schools of which 99% are post-secondary. My students have worked hard to obtain the top 15th percentile of schools in the GA program. All the kudos goes to them!
