Caterpillar Dealer Service Technician Program Summary:
During the first two years, the program devotes approximately half of the time to technical/academic education at SJDC. The remaining time is for on-the-job experience at sponsoring CAT dealerships. Each block of technical and general education is followed by an immediate dealer internship which reinforces the technical education. These intern periods are approximately eight weeks in length each. It is essential for the success of the program that the student’s education at SJDC and the dealership work experience be closely aligned for maximum learning and retention. This is a paid internship that provides the student with the opportunity to pay for his/her education while receiving valuable work experience. College fees, textbooks, travel expenses, and housing costs are the responsibility of the student. A prescribed tool set will be provided to each student to use while enrolled in this program. During the last two years of the program, students will be full-time apprentice technicians at the sponsoring CAT dealership receiving additional on-the-job training. This training provides the technician with the opportunity to further develop and enhance the skills necessary for journey-level certification.
