Considering a future as a John Deere Technician? Keep reading to find out what you should know before starting the program, why this career is a great choice, and how GreenMark Equipment supports students going through the program. 

Who Should Apply for the Program?

If you are someone who likes to tinker or take things apart in your spare time and aren’t afraid to get your hands dirty, you might be an ideal candidate to join a John Deere Technician program. While many interested students have a background with heavy machinery from growing up in the agriculture industry or taking automotive or welding classes in school, it is not a requirement.

GreenMark Equipment's Talent Acquisition Specialist, Lindsi Schricker, explains further, "We look for those who have strong attention to detail, good communication skills, and aren’t afraid to ask questions!" Anyone passionate about the iconic green and yellow paint or is interested in becoming a technician is encouraged to fill out our interest form.

How Long Does It Take to Become a Technician?

Most programs to become a certified technician are typically 18 months through one of our partner colleges. Our team is here to guide you through the application process and beyond.

When you continue your career with GreenMark we also provide additional training to help you become a more well-rounded technician that’s ready to take on less common and more advanced repairs.

Why Choose a Career as a John Deere Tech?

John Deere is an industry leader and you’ll be working with top-of-the-line products and cutting-edge technology. We make sure our techs are continuously learning and are ready to work with the latest and greatest technology.

One point that Lindsi likes to bring up to students is that you’ll be providing service and support to your local community – whether it’s working on turf equipment in the shop or getting on the road to assist with down agricultural equipment. "It’s extremely rewarding knowing that you play an integral part in helping farmers keep the world fed," she notes.
