AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

South Georgia Technical College has officially joined a new partnership with John Deere to offer a new Tech program.

Students will now be able to pursue a two year associate degree in Agricultural Technology, that's required for a career with a John Deere dealer. Students will also receive training at a dealer throughout the program.

"Well there's a shortage for qualified service technicians in the field," said Jenni Badding, John Deere College Partnership Manager. "So, this job will place graduates into a John Deere dealership." 

"We could not be more excited," said Sparky Reeves, South Georgia Technical College President. "It's going to be a great partnership and relationship and I know because of the Ag industry in Georgia." 

The John Deere TECH classes will begin this fall on August 20th.
