Daimler Truck North America announced the opening of its expanded Detroit Service Training Center, which will be used to train technicians in electric powertrain service, battery maintenance and full truck repair.

Established in 2018 to provide service training on DTNA’s conventional Detroit powertrains, the center has been enlarged to accommodate eight new courses, including those to teach courses on the Detroit ePowertrain, which is launching in the Freightliner eCascadia and eM2, the Portland, Ore.-based company said.

The Detroit Service Training Center is one of three corporate truck service training centers located in, or adjacent to, DTNA manufacturing plants. Additional training centers can be found at DTNA’s Portland Truck Manufacturing Plant in Oregon, which also serves as the assembly point for the Freightliner eCascadia and eM2, and the Cleveland Truck Manufacturing Plant in North Carolina.

Detroit is a brand of Detroit Diesel Corp., a subsidiary of DTNA. Detroit offers midrange and heavy-duty diesel engines, ePowertrains, transmissions, axles, safety systems, and connected vehicle services for on-highway and vocational commercial markets.— Transport Topics
