You're a Good Fit for this program because . . .
The program is the result of a cooperative effort between John Deere
Construction Equipment Company and SCC. It is a seven-quarter 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. Students will be on campus
the first two quarters (six months) followed by one quarter (three months) of
work experience in a sponsoring Deere Construction & Forestry Equipment
dealership. Quarters four and five will be on campus, followed by another
quarter of work experience at the student’s sponsoring dealership. The seventh
quarter will be on campus prior to graduation. Wages earned during these periods
of work experience help offset student’s educational costs. While on campus,
students participate in lecture/lab courses during five of the seven quarters.
The program is fully accredited by the state of Nebraska and by the Higher Learning Commission.
