• Overview - 2019/2020

    Fixing and maintaining the machines that help feed the world is a noble pursuit. It's also an in-demand career where your unique talents will be sought after and valued. If you enjoy tinkering with big machines, aren't afraid to get down and dirty, and are looking for an in-demand and rewarding career, the Agricultural Equipment Technician (Block Release) [Apprenticeship] program will jump start your training and set you on your way.

    You'll be trained to repair and maintain tractors and harvesting equipment, overhauling engines, transmissions, hydraulic, electrical and electronic systems. You'll be relied on and needed for agricultural success – the one behind the scenes ensuring the vital tools that do the work, work.

    But these days, the business of Agricultural Technicians isn't relegated to the workshop, silo or garage. You'll be required to network with clients, cooperate with managers and farmers, and constantly evolve your skills with new technologies, repair techniques and agricultural practices. The modern Agricultural Technician is also a computer expert.

    There's more to the program. If you're ready to work and want to combine your training with paid work, the apprenticeship component of the program will allow you to train under the direction of experienced workers with shorter lengths of classroom or online training.
