Welcome to Garden City Community College John Deere TECH Program

John Deere

GCCC's John Deere TECH program was started in 1991 by John Deere Company and Garden City Community College. Its purpose is to create skilled technicians for employment in the agricultural equipment business. It is a four-way partnership with the John Deere Company, the John Deere dealer, Garden City Community College, and the students in our program.

John Deere has pledged to keep our program current with training components, equipment and educational opportunities for our instructors.

The dealers have pledged to provide paid internship experience and uniforms for our students.

The college provides the facilities, instructors, and classes to round out this Associate Degree program.

John Deere's vision of their partnership programs probably says it best:

John Deere college partnership programs are the pre-eminent college and industry training programs to provide highly trained graduates to meet the needs of John Deere dealers.
