LogoThe Navarro College John Deere TECH Program is designed to help upgrade the skill level of new John Deere service technicians and help prepare them for a career opportunity in a field with excellent employment opportunities.

Students can be prepared through the John Deere TECH program to work on today’s and tomorrow’s equipment as they learn to cope with technological advancements in the farm equipment industry. Students successfully completing the program will be awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree. The curriculum is designed by John Deere and Navarro College to focus on the entire line of John Deere products.

The goal is to help provide the student with the experience in hydraulics, electrical engines, power trains, air conditioning, machine setup and adjustment, and the computer-assisted resource material used in the entire John Deere service network. This training will be accomplished by rotating the learning experiences between the classroom and well-equipped, hands-on labs.

Students in the program will also work at a John Deere dealership during summer and winter holidays as part of their training.
