Josh Fisher from fleetowner said that The last century was the Stone Age of heavy-duty truck diagnostics compared to the high-tech requirements for technicians working on today’s trucks. Diagnostic advancements are expected to grow this decade as trucking moves closer to its autonomous future, which will require more help from technology to help technicians keep pace with complex vehicle changes.
“Before 1990, a lot of techs could become very good techs just from on-the-job training — without a lot of self-education along the way,” Rick Tapp, maintenance manager of Paccar Leasing, told FleetOwner. “It was more mechanical then. And little by little, it has become all-electric. In today’s world, a technician can’t survive unless he’s on a continuous education program.”
