Earn and learn through a fabulous apprenticeship at John Deere

John Deere's Apprenticeship Program helps address a widespread shortage of service technicians, especially in rural areas across the country, by providing dealers with a formalized, on-the-job and technical training plan to help them develop more highly skilled employees.

"The Registered Apprenticeship Program complements our existing John Deere TECH program. In addition to the on-the-job training experience, an apprentice receives technical instruction and is assigned a personal mentor as a part of the highly organized training structure. Upon completion of the apprenticeship, he or she will receive a nationally recognized journeyworker certificate," explains Grant Suhre, Director, Region 4 Customer and Product Support for John Deere Ag & Turf.

Earn and learn 

Through participation in the apprenticeship program, dealers formally commit to developing additional talent in an earn-while-you-learn program. A participating apprentice benefits from structured, on-the-job training in partnership with an experienced mentor. As training progresses, apprentices are rewarded for new skills acquired.

Apprentice mentorship 

Apprentices can enter the Agriculture and Equipment Technician or Heavy Construction Equipment Mechanic programs. In addition, other occupations can be selected for the apprentice program, including sales professionals, parts professionals, accountants or many other occupations.

When apprentices participate, they track and report their on-the-job learning and technical training time in conjunction with their employer.
