John Deere's new training prospectus has been launched as a way to provide younger individuals who are interested in a career in land-based engineering with tools and resources to further their education, the Crop Site NewsDesk reported.
According to the news outlet, the prospectus provides young people aged 16 to 19 with details of the John Deere Ag Tech, Turf Tech and Parts Tech apprentice technician and parts training programs. These students may or may not have used John Deere equipment, but a number of them may have gained an interest due to their operating the company's machines.
"John Deere dealer service technicians are trained in engineering, electronics, hydraulics, diagnostics, communication skills, computing, sales and marketing. The need for skilled people working in our industry has never been greater, and we believe that these training programmes offer an ideal career development path to anyone with a keen interest in engineering," said John Deere Limited's training manager Chris Wiltshire.
The program will help to teach these students about the potential uses of the equipment, which range from inclusion in John Deere products to Formula One cars.
The John Deere TECH program helps to provide students with a two-year associates degree and balances classroom theory, hands-on work and paid internships.
