John Deere Agricultural Tech Program

The John Deere Agricultural Tech curriculum follows the general Agricultural Technology curriculum standards except that the material is concentrated on the needs of John Deere agricultural and turf equipment dealers. The program is designed to be a two-year Associate in Applied Science degree. Wake Tech is one of 21 community colleges that provide instruction on John Deere agricultural equipment.


The Agricultural Tech program provides unique opportunities for both the student and the dealer sponsor. To find out how you can receive reimbursement for books and tuition, earn a tool set (or get it at cost) or start a career in a growing field, contact Paige Kearns at 919-866-5257 or [email protected]
