State PAS AMSTA Competition

We traveled to Iowa Lakes to compete in the 2018 Iowa Ag Machinery Service Technician Award Competition. The competition included a written test, measuring, parts ID and several lab projects. Eight students from John Deere Tech competed and did a great job. We will be off to National competition in March. Great Job!!

John Deere Information Technology

We welcomed the sophomores back for the dealerships in November for John Deere Information Technology Class. This year we merged more emissions training with Service ADVISOR Certification because the are so closely tied together. We had the computers running for everything that we did from live connections, diagnostics, parts lookup, controller software updates, emissions testing and sales presentations.

Not everyone shares my enthusiasm!

Electrical/Electronics I

We introduced the freshman to their Fluke meter and had several opportunities to put it to use. Electrical/Electronics class introduces the students to components, electrical theory, circuits and testing. We still may be looking for that voltage that we dropped!
