Western Equipment Dealership
The summer before school starts, Western Equipment Ag Techs are placed in a paid mentorship program. This is a 2 months program where the students are paired with veteran technicians both in the shop and field to start learning the ins and outs of what it takes to be a Western technician.
You will also work at your sponsoring dealership as part of the curriculum. And get paid for it. This is where all your time in class comes together. You continue to learn from seasoned service technicians and deal with real people, customers who need their equipment fixed right. And fixed right now.
Your time at a dealership is intense. You'll put all you know about John Deere diesel engines, powertrains, electronics, and diagnostics to work. You’ll learn you really can fix a machine with a laptop and a wrench. And you'll discover how your skills affect everyone you come into contact with, from customers to coworkers. It's this real-life experience that puts our graduates in demand. Not only are you learning about working in a dealership, but dealerships are learning about working with you.
This program requires that you have a high school diploma or equivalent. Your chosen school can help you register for applicable college entrance exams.
Successful graduates go to work at Western Equipment dealerships that provide excellent starting pay, extensive benefits and great work conditions. You'll go to work every day using your newly gained skills, knowing the dealer values your talent and passion. Western Equipment invests in our technicians because providing the best service possible is the driving force behind our business.
