The AGCO Advantage program will provide more courses in the Diesel Technology area while training students in agricultural machinery repair, said Rob Blair, dean of Technical Education.
The student internship agreement involves AGCO, an agricultural machinery manufacturer, WarrenCAT and the college.
SPC’s partnership with WarrenCAT started in 2004, and the company provided the college’s Diesel Technology program with $125,000 in five years. The company also sponsored tuition for intern students and provided Caterpillar equipment.
The college’s new partner, AGCO, will help train future diesel technicians for the company’s dealerships, Blair said.
