What is the SNP Career Academy Vs Ag Tech program??

posted on Monday, April 25, 2022 in SNPartners

The agriculture industry is rich with opportunities for a fulfilling career. It takes a lot of hands to feed the world, from farmers and ranchers to those who build the machines on which they work. Technical service professionals are an integral cog in the wheel that keeps the world of agriculture rolling.

Are you interested in starting a career in the agriculture tech space? We have two paths at Sydenstricker Nobbe Partners that lead to your path as a successful equipment technician.  SNP's own Career Academy with classes starting Fall 2022 or the Student Tech program at a sponsored John Deere tech school. See the options below.

Located in our facility currently under construction in Wentzville, MO, this awesome opportunity comes at zero cost to participants. In fact, students get paid for the work they do while attending! Sydenstricker Nobbe Partners are one of the first dealerships in the country to set up its own program so students can start earning money immediately. Classes will begin Fall of 2022 with a Sydenstricker Nobbe class instructor and mentoring from currently experienced service technicians.  

Perks include full-time pay with benefits, paid housing, and a hands-on learning environment.

Participants in our Student Tech Program get a two-year associate's degree from a John Deere TECH program with tuition reimbursement from SNP that focuses on the fundamentals necessary to become an excellent service technician. Some of the closest John Deere Tech Programs in our area are Lake Land College-Matton, IL; Fort Scott Community College- Frontenac, KS; and Vincennes University-Vincennes, IN.  

Upon graduation from the program, students can become certified in one of John Deere’s core service areas: Electrical, Hydraulics, or Service Advising. 

Other student tech programs that are available for SNP tuition reimbursement use your Missouri A+ credits at State Technical College in Missouri.
