MOLINE, Ill. – In partnership with RDO Equipment Co., John Deere is expanding its C&F Tech initiative to include North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, N.D. The John Deere dealer technician job training program is a two-year associate’s degree that enables students to troubleshoot, service, repair and rebuild diesel equipment used by customers nationwide.

The C&F Tech program is a partnership between John Deere, its dealers and select community colleges across the country. Students are sponsored by Deere dealers to attend a participating college. These students are able to apply knowledge developed through dealership work experience, along with the college curriculum, and graduate with a two-year AAS degree in Diesel Technology or equivalent.

The C&F Tech Initiative expands the John Deere commitment at NDSCS, building on the success of the existing John Deere Ag & Turf Technician program.
