Recent studies have revealed a rising demand for diesel service technicians, due to the retirement of older technicians from the job and lack of enthusiasm for trade school education as a high percentage of America’s high schools have removed shop classes from their education curriculum. With the pressing need for maintaining, repairing, and regular servicing of diesel-run vehicles that ply the roads daily, the role of diesel technicians cannot be overemphasized. However, despite this cautionary prediction, schools in the United States are churning out just a meager number of trained diesel technicians annually. The Diesel Garage Foundation is committed to increasing this number by offering mouth-watering incentives to individuals who are interested in this field but are limited by financial constraints.
The Diesel Garage Foundation is also pleased to partner with Diesel Laptops to award one lucky winner a scholarship fundraising raffle draw for the Diesel Laptops Prize. This initiative offers the winner a cutting-edge diagnostic kit after they have purchased a raffle ticket.
“I am thankful to have the opportunity to partner with and work Tyler Robertson, CEO of Diesel Laptops, to help give back to the industry through this amazing Fundraising Raffle! Their superior diagnostics system from DL will help John to diagnose and repair projects with better efficiency getting jobs completed. I highly recommend Diesel Laptops products and services to anyone in the diesel industry!
I appreciate their support for our Foundation and look forward to working with them in the future.” – Eric Villa, Founder and Chairman at the Diesel Garage Foundation
Speaking on the recent collaboration, Diesel Laptops had this to say, “Diesel Laptops is proud to participate in this raffle and provide one of our industry-leading diagnostic kits to our winner! Given the current conditions affecting our country and our economy, Diesel Laptops is committed to helping find solutions for the diesel technician shortage. And Eric Villa and his Diesel Garage Foundation are a perfect match for the pursuit of this goal. Diesel Laptops supports the mission of the Diesel Garage Foundation and the future of the diesel industry.”

John had this to say about winning the Raffle and the importance of what the Foundation is doing to give back to the diesel industry;
“While attending the Virtual Diesel Expo hosted by Alliant Power and Diesel Laptops, I stopped into the Diesel Garage Foundations booth. I took interest in the program and what Eric Villa has put together for opportunities to give back to technicians coming up in school. The Diesel Garage Foundation had an opportunity to give back to the industry with a raffle for a Diesel Laptop diagnostics system. Coming from a background of attending a trade school, I felt the need to help someone who could use it. The Diesel Garage Foundation supports this by sponsoring Technicians through school and assists in helping them find work in the industry even before the complete the school.
Being able to win the Diesel Laptop System from the raffle is amazing! I currently work for an Engine Distributor as a trainer, and we run across technicians utilizing the Diesel Laptop for diagnostics. With having my own to utilize, I can understand what others are seeing to help them diagnose down machines faster. I cannot wait to use it more and learn more from the online training that is offered as well.
The Virtual Diesel Expo that was hosted by Alliant Power and Diesel Laptops was a great event and I cannot wait to attend again next year!
Thank you to the Diesel Garage Foundation and the opportunity to give back and win something amazing! Thanks,
