John Deere Information Technology

Information Technology class this year was a challenge for all of us. Service ADVISOR 5 standalone had just been released and we loaded 32 new computers with the new software. We also added some emissions training to the class this year. The lab offered experiences on Final Tier 4 equipment using Service ADVISOR 5. Near the end of the class the students tested online for John Deere Service ADVISOR Certification and all were successful. We wrapped up the class with presentations. Here are some pictures.
 






Implement Class

Splicing belts, programing guidance systems, calibrating sprayers and testing row units kept everyone busy during John Deere Implement class again this year.

Remodeling Cont........

This remodel process has been a long one. We are making progress and on November 2nd we would like you to come and see what we have done. We are using the west shop, the old computer lab, the new computer lab and we have started to use Room 108. We are starting to empty the trailers and move things back into the building but there is still much work to be done. I am working diligently to overcome being a pack rat and its not easy.
