“Many of the training units we have for students to practice on are used vehicles and equipment we receive as donations from the community. Some are just the cadavers that we save components from, others can be restored to a point that they can be repurposed as inexpensive basic transportation,” said David May, CNCC automotive/diesel Tech faculty.

May added that the public auction process is similar to the “arm’s-length agreement sealed bid auction process” used by Moffat County and the Colorado Department of Transporation when fleet vehicles are replaced.
