SAIT offers the 2nd and 4th period training.
Agricultural Equipment Technicians repair, overhaul and maintain agricultural equipment including tractors, tillage equipment, seeding equipment and harvesting equipment. They service and repair engines, transmissions, hydraulic systems, and electronic systems. They pinpoint problems; repair or replace broken, worn-out or faulty parts; reassemble and test repaired units; and assemble and adjust new agricultural equipment.
The Agricultural Equipment Technician apprenticeship program shares two common training periods with the Heavy Equipment Technician apprenticeship program. Apprentices in the Agricultural Equipment Technician apprenticeship program have the option of taking their 2nd and 4th period technical training at SAIT. Agricultural Equipment Technician 2nd period is equivalent to 2nd period Heavy Equipment Technician training and Agricultural Equipment Technician 4th period is equivalent to 3rd period Heavy Equipment Technician training. Apprentices may be eligible for financial support.
To enter an apprenticeship, you must have the educational qualifications required for the trade to which you apply. Entrance requirements are monitored by Alberta and Industry Training.
