    Name: John Deere program of FSCC Open House for Interested Students
    Date: November 3, 2017
    Time: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:

    Students who fulfill all requirements for the program have options of electrical, hydraulic or service advisor certification.

    The program’s students must be sponsored by a John Deere dealership, and go through an interview process, Instructor Kent Aikin said.

    Aikin and second Instructor Dale Griffiths help the students through the whole process.

    “We help locate a dealership to sponsor them,” Aikin said.

    “There is a high demand for these jobs,” Aikin said. “The job prospects are good. I’d say over 90 percent have a job waiting for them.”

    The move from Frontenac to the repurposed facility on the FSCC campus was precipitated by the selling of the building they were leasing, FSCC Director of Public Relations Heather Browne said.

    Students have more accessibility for living in the dorms now,  Browne said.

    They also have easier accessibility for completing their general education classes, Griffiths said.

    An open house for any interested students will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, November 2 and 8 a.m. to noonFriday, November 3.

    Following completion of the new part of the facility in December, a grand opening for the public will be in February, Aikin said.
