Heavy Equipment Parts Person Certification

Why It All Started

PP Cert thumbWe started the Certified Heavy Equipment Parts Person Apprentice Program to fill the need for industry-trained, qualified parts people at our dealership locations. This is a highly-skilled career path, where on-the-job experience has traditionally been the method to acquire these skills. We are changing that.

In the Upper Midwest, there is no longer a post-secondary educational venue to teach the Parts Person’s skills from Inventory Control, Cataloging and Parts Lookup, Warehousing, Sales History or Demand, and Parts Obsolesces. We believe that both education and real-life experience set people up for greater success. Thus, the launch of our program. We are giving you the opportunity to gain powerful skills and have zero debt. 

The Goal

The goal of this program is to use a combination of On-the-Job Training (OJT), coupled with Mentoring under the guidance of experienced Parts People, and Educational Training, through a local technical college. Classes will focus on various skills needed for the typical Heavy Equipment Parts Person. Upon satisfactory completion of the program, the Apprentice will be a Certified Heavy Equipment Parts Person.

These include diesel and electrical power sources, hydraulics, welding, equipment maintenance, industry specific componentry, trouble shooting and diagnostics. We believe that both education and real-life experience, set people up for greater success. Thus, the launch of our program.
