Successful students become well-rounded, employable, third-party certified professionals equipped to enter careers in the ag equipment field at an entry level or above sales position or as a service technician.  

Earn While You Learn

One of the really great parts of this program, as with MCC’s other agricultural programs, is that students literally earn while they learn. Students spend part of their time in actual work environments, earning money, while they are learning on the job.
