Agricultural Power and Equipment Technician

Ag Power and Equipment Tech SW APET CC

Agricultural equipment has become more complex, precise, and expensive; and it is becoming more difficult for individuals to repair their own equipment. This program prepares students to be employed as technicians at farm implement dealerships, repair shops, businesses that use farm equipment or diesel engines, or to work on their own equipment. This program stresses practical hands-on experience in the shop. Students learn the theory, operation, and repair of tillage, planting, harvesting equipment, and tractors. Opportunities to troubleshoot and service farm equipment are a valuable aspect of this program. Students study diesel engines, drivetrains, electrical systems, and hydraulics.
