John Deere is expanding its Construction & Forestry Tech initiative with the help of RDO Equipment Co.
The program has been expanded to include North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, North Dakota.
The two-year technician job training program is designed to teach students how to troubleshoot, service, repair and rebuild diesel equipment used by customers.
Each student is sponsored by a Deere dealer to attend the college and is able to apply the knowledge through dealership work experience, college curriculum and graduate with a two-year AAS degree in Diesel Technology or equivalent.
The program is a collaborative effort between John Deere, the company’s dealers and select community colleges nationwide.
