HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Students in Kansas can take free classes on how to fix tractors at two community colleges through a technology program partnership with John Deere.
Students can enroll in the free agricultural tech program at Garden City and Fort Scott community colleges as long as they find a John Deere dealership to sponsor them.
The programs usually run at capacity, which means it is important for students to find a sponsor as early as possible and to inform the college. Although official registration for the associate degree program begins in the spring, notifying the colleges about a sponsorship reserves a slot in the program.
