Jasper Engines & Transmissions has formed a partnership with Ohio Technical College (OTC) to use Jasper products in the school’s automotive and auto-diesel programs. Jasper will provide engines, transmissions and differentials, along with manufacturing, marketing and sponsor support to OTC.
OTC students will train on the company’s products during a six-week course held in the new Jasper Engines & Transmissions Training Center Lab building. The training center will consist of five classrooms: three engine labs, one automatic transmission lab, and one manual transmission and differential lab.
Students will learn disassembly, measuring, cylinder honing, how to work with heli-coil inserts, timing belt installation, and proper re-assembly and torque procedures. The Jasper course also will train students on automatic transmissions in rear- and front-wheel drive vehicles, which will be covered in car diagnostic testing as well as transmission removal and reinstallation. In addition, manual transmission classes will cover differentials.
