DET John Deere Construction & Forestry Technician Associate Degree
The John Deere Company was founded in 1837 and has grown from a one-man blacksmith shop into a corporation that today does business around the world and employs approximately 56,000 people. There are literally thousands of dealerships across North America providing ample job opportunities.
And with the right skills, those job opportunities could be available for you, thanks to a dealer-sponsored program through DET’s John Deere Construction & Forestry Technician Program. John Deere and DET have partnered to provide the John Deere dealerships with qualified technicians. The program provides an excellent opportunity for those seeking employment with a well-established employer who distributes and maintains John Deere construction and forestry equipment.
In addition to learning operational concepts of diesel engines, power trains, brakes, electrical and hydraulic systems, air conditioning and shop procedures and safety, students gain on-the-job experience provided by a sponsoring dealership, where they work with experienced John Deere technicians in day-to-day operations.
