The power sports industry, involving ATVs and UTVs, and turf equipment management are rapidly-growing fields. When something breaks, it needs to be fixed right. Local employers have expressed a need for mechanics with specific skills in turf equipment, small engine repair and outdoor power equipment to maintain and repair professional, commercial and recreational equipment.
Students can be trained and ready for a job in this industry in less than a year.
The technical certificate in Outdoor Power Equipment is a two-semester program that provides students with skills necessary for a variety of jobs in the outdoor equipment and small engine career field. The program provides entry level knowledge and skills to set up, operate, and maintain outdoor equipment and technologies commonly used in the industry, including but not limited to mowing equipment, spraying equipment, small engines, ATV’s, and UTV’s. The 31-credit hour program of study provides students with a technical certificate credential and preparation for future employment in this high demand field.
