John Deere Construction & Forestry Technician training program [1]John Deere has expanded its Construction & Forestry Technicians program to an eighth community college. The latest school to include the program is North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton.

C&F Tech, as it’s called, is a John Deere dealer technician training program and a two-year associate’s degree that teaches its students to service, troubleshoot, repair and rebuild diesel equipment.

At each of the eight community colleges across the country, the C&F Tech degree is offered as a partnership between John Deere and a dealer in the area. Students are sponsored by Deere dealers to attend a participating college but also gain knowledge through working at the dealership itself. They graduate with an AAS degree in Diesel Technology or equivalent.

John Deere C&F Tech community colleges [2] “We invest in technicians because they are the best in the industry and we’re excited to work closely with NDSCS to provide successful graduates the opportunity to work at a John Deere dealership,” said Jean Zimmerman, the executive vice president of organizational development at Deere dealer RDO Equipment Co.

In addition to C&F Tech, NDSCS also offers the John Deere Ag & Turf Technician program.
