Big equipment. Big opportunities. And one of only 11 ThinkBIG programs in the nation. Any guesses on what we’re talking about? Our Caterpillar Dealer Service Technician option, of course!
This exclusive program allows you to get paid while you hone your skills. You’ll work hands-on with Caterpillar heavy equipment, while also getting on-the-job training through paid internships at Fabick CAT and Foley Equipment.
Our curriculum lets you experience a wide variety of technologies including electronically controlled engines, computer-based diagnostics, hydraulics, and more. Plus, we will show you how to service CAT equipment using cutting-edge diagnostic and maintenance systems, advanced technologies, and high-tech tools.
This is a five semester program with classes held during the summer semester.
We believe time-on-task has to be part of your education. That means time spent learning from experienced instructors in real-world environments and real-world situations. That’s why the State Tech campus is home to more than 50 labs, an automotive bay, aviation hangar, and 40+ acres of land dedicated to our heavy equipment operations program.
