The Case IH program is designed to develop technically competent, professional service technicians for participating Case IH dealerships.
This program combines state-of-the-art, on-campus training with internships at a sponsoring Case IH dealership. Students receive technical training on Case IH equipment and related products through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on laboratory experiences. Classroom and laboratory instruction at NDSCS covers the basics of each subject plus the latest developments in Case IH agricultural equipment. Work experience at the dealership reinforces on-campus training and exposes the student to real life shop service practices.
Green technology is addressed through changes in emission standards and alternative fuels that will continue to advance changes in this industry.
The Case IH program takes five semesters or approximately 20 months to complete. The five semesters are divided into 9 terms, each approximately eight weeks in length. Students complete the first, second, third, fifth, seventh, eighth and ninth terms on campus and the fourth and sixth terms at a participating Case IH dealership.
