students working on projectThe Caterpillar Service Technology program is designed to prepare entry-level service technicians for Caterpillar dealerships throughout the world. During this full-time two-year program, the student will develop the skills needed to be productive with little on-the-job training after graduation. Each semester will consist of eight weeks of classroom and eight weeks of required paid internship. To be considered for the program, each candidate must take the San Joaquin Delta College academic placement test to determine appropriate class placement. Applications will be screened by Caterpillar dealerships for program selection; a Caterpillar dealer will sponsor each enrollee.

Applicants not selected for sponsorship into the Caterpillar Service Technology program are encouraged to enroll in the Heavy Equipment Technology program or Diesel Equipment Technology program.
