The John Deere TECH Program at South Georgia Technical College is specifically designed to advance the skill level of new John Deere service technicians. Program participants are prepared to excel in today’s high-tech, fast-paced field of agricultural mechanization –a career path with excellent employment opportunities. Students learn in an environment that stresses a balanced rotation of classroom theory and hands-on labs outfitted with advanced training aids, along with the latest ag equipment and resources.
Plus, participants gain valuable, practical insight and real-world experience by applying what they’ve learned during paid Supervised Occupational Experiences (S.O.E.) at John Deere dealerships – a wonderful opportunity for students to “earn while they learn.”
Students who complete the two-year program are awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree. John Deere TECH students who pass also have opportunity to receive their Service ADVISOR, hydraulic, and electrical certifications.
