    Overview

    The program is the result of a cooperative effort between John Deere Construction Equipment Company and SCC. It is a four semester program designed to teach students all facets of Deere Construction & Forestry Equipment; from backhoes, excavators, dozers, loaders, motor graders, scrapers, to articulated trucks. Deere construction equipment is used in numerous types of earthmoving, including road building, underground utilities, site development and residential construction. It also is used in material handling, road repair, maintenance, and in full-tree and cut-to-length harvesting operations and in mill yards. While on campus, students participate in lecture/lab courses. The program is fully accredited by the state of Nebraska and by the Higher Learning Commission.

    Mission

    The mission of the Deere Construction and Forestry Equipment Tech program is to prepare individuals for employment as high-quality entry-level technicians with Deere Construction & Forestry Equipment dealers.

    Employment Outlook

    The number of heavy vehicle and mobile equipment service technicians and mechanics is expected to grow about as fast as average. Those who have completed postsecondary training programs should find excellent opportunities, but those without a formal background in diesel engine or heavy vehicle repair will face keen competition. Graduates report an average annual starting salary of $50,544.
