Apprenticeship course details

Engineering is a practical subject. It’s about making things work and fixing things that don’t. You will learn to

use the very latest John Deere equipment, working at the cutting edge of technology to gain the important skills

required in a fast developing, high-tech industry. John Deere dealer service technicians are trained in engineering,

electronics, hydraulics, diagnostics, communication skills, computing, sales and marketing.

The industry’s Landbased Technician Accreditation (LTA) scheme, administered

by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE), is designed to raise

standards within the workforce, and to recognise an individual’s ability,

skills and experience. Apprentices starting the John Deere engineering

apprenticeship programme are automatically registered at Level 1. Successful

John Deere Diploma graduates qualify for Level 2 accreditation, with the

chance to progress in time to LTA Level 4 (Master Technician). For further
