John Deere Construction & Forestry Tech Program
The Construction and Forestry Technology (C&F Tech) curriculum follows the general HEATT curriculum standards; however, the material is concentrated on the needs of John Deere construction equipment dealers. The program is designed to be a two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. John Deere dealers from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia sponsor students. Wake Tech is one of seven community colleges that provide instruction on John Deere construction and forestry equipment.
