The Outdoor Power Equipment Technician Program provides intensive career preparation through interactive web-based classroom instruction with live shop, hands-on application either on-campus or off-campus, with the off-campus students learning in on-the-job environments. Off-campus students must have access to a work site and need a mentor to complete this training.
The program is certified by the national Equipment and Engine Training Council (EETC) and is led by an EETC certified instructor. Students prepare technical knowledge and mechanical skills necessary to service, troubleshoot and repair today’s sophisticated recreational, residential and commercial outdoor power equipment using the competencies and national testing provided by the EETC. Training materials and equipment are provided through cooperative agreements with regional dealerships, national manufacturers, and the local community. Curriculum is reviewed by the Outdoor Power and Turf Equipment Technician advisory board which is composed of local and regional industry members.
