Hear from Ag Tech students


"I attended Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, CO which provided a quality education and great hands on experience in the shop. I felt ready to enter the workforce. The company assisted me with purchasing a good set of tools and I landed this job right out of college! It’s great working with the veteran technicians as they are always willing to help and provide tricks of the trade."

“I attended the John Deere Ag Tech program in Milford. It was nice being able to reinforce what we learned in the classroom during our coop experience at the dealership. I already knew John Deere Service Advisor, Parts Expert and DTAC so it made starting the job easier. The tuition assistance was a big help and made college affordable for me.”
